I’m about as good at blogging as I am at woodworking, so I haven’t been very good at keeping this going. I have spent the past few weeks working with a bit of vacation thrown in but have got back to work on the trestle table. I am at...
Ok, so it has been a while since I posted an entry. The top is finished and now stored letting the polyurethane cure a bit before I do the final rub out and wax. I have since turned my attention to the base. The hardest part was making the cr...
Unfortunately, it has been a while since I did any meaningful work on the table. I was hoping to take the top to a friends workplace to use their widebelt sander, but a family tragedy occurred and I didn’t want to impose myself during their...
