Well after anouncing yesterday I was going to enter this Challenge I figured I better get started.
I went into my shop this morning to decide what wood I should use. I found some popular,cherry and oak. I also had some black walnut logs but not near enough.
So I went to my old barn to see what was there. I had plenty of old timbers and planks from a barn I tore down and saved. I also had some old tounge and groove flooring that came out of that bard.
I took a piece to my planner and ran it thru. I really like what I saw so I planned enough to probly make three tables.
That was the easy part now for the design. I have studied the pics on this site as well as the original. And have come up with a few things to make it my own. Tho I wonder should it look more like the original are the one posted on this site.
I guess I better get started cutting some boards and glueing them up . Lots of work to do. The final design will come to me as I work as it allways does.(I hope)
Good Luck Everyone
I posted a pic of boards in the project section
