My eldest daughter, Jennifer. was home this week for Christmas. She wanted a couple of hall/occasional tables for her apartment. We had to scurry as we only had a few days. Since she’s an accomplished violinist I did the table saw cuts. She used the chop and band saw and did all the gluing, sanding, and spraying. We kept it simple and used pocket hole screws to speed up production. completed in three sessions of about 4 hrs each.
Each table is made of cherry with three coats sprayed on policrylic on them. I did first cut, or drill and screw. She did the rest. Smart cookie, PhD in engineering in biomedical nanotechnology. Works at Harvard Medical. She’s always caught on quickly. What a fun weekend this was with her as she’s still my kid and is a delight to be with.
