ok so I am really stubborn!!
For those of you not reading blogs, I’ll just say that I’ve tried everything to get the photos to show up and some people can see them and some people can’t.
SO… I’ll post them here and I win!! :D

Photo 1: The First Cut.. using the little ripper, cutting the wood into planks. Wood is 15+ year old firewood from our backyard.
Photo 2: The top glued together.
Photo 3: the aprons (if that is what they are called) sitting on top of the table top.

Right on. From the milling, to the jointing, to the assembly.

Do it all yourself. Looking great.

Thank you Karson.
Now if only it stands upright when it is finished – I’ll be very very proud of my new plant stand table.

That’s really great cutting your own wood. I can’t wait to see the finished table.

Yes, it’s willow my willow.

The top is just glued – it was the only option that I had, having limited know-how, and limited skills. So, so far it’s still together! :)

Thanks Max.
The little ripper is pretty cool. It has metal “teeth” that bite into the wood at the top and bottom and hold the log securely while you run it through the bandsaw. It slides along its own little table. It will hold a log .. hmm .. quite long hhehehe

Dick showed me a link that has a handmade item that holds a log.

Thanks Debbie!!!! Looks like it works rather well… It rides in the miter guage slot doesn’t it? I will have to read up on it….

the table sits on top of the bandsaw table and then the Ripper table has a slot that the Ripper itself glides along. If that makes sense.
I just checked out their website and they don’t show the Ripper Table. I guess that is a new addition – oh and we bought the “extra” package so maybe that’s why we got the table.

Nice pictures…might have some issues with the boards glued on the ends and spliting over the years. Probably fine if you don’t move to a different climate. The wood looks great.

This just reminded me my grandfather has quite a bit of well seasoned oak in big but manageable sizes… that would be nice to make this table out of. More of a family connection that the other piece I showed… OK, now I’ve got 4+ ideas percolating…

Great stuff, Debbie. I really like the idea of milling your own wood. I’m sure you will love the outcome. :-)
