Great table. Thanks for the in process pictures. It is nice to see how some of the parts are made. Don’t you just love using a sled??

Cheers, Jim

Very Nice Work Indeed! Thanks For Sharing!

I did a “Wall Niche” using Water Based Stain. Will Never Use It Again! It hides The Grain! Oil Base Stain ONLY From now on.
