« Part 3: Pre-Finish Part 4 of Thorsen Challenge series no next part

Well I hate to see this come to an end. This was a fun little project to build. I tried to keep it simple yet add a touch of me to it. I guess we all do that in everything we build. I am giving this table to my mother I hope she enjoys it as much as I did making it.

I have not been on this site long but I am glad I found it. The people here are all so friendly and willing to share their wealth of knowledge.

I know this was a challenge but its refreshing not to have the cut throat competition that we see every where else today. Its not about winning its about having fun doing what we love to do. And sharing ideas.

I want to take this time to wish everyone the best of luck and congradulate the winner. But in saying that from what I have seen here we are all winners.

Thank you all
Have fun and work safe.

John Shackleford

There is a picture of my finished table in the project section.

I know that your Mom will love this (and not only because she is your Mom!)

Isn’t this the greatest “home away from home”? The people here are amazing. One big family with lots of sibling “teasing”, family support, and teacher guidance.

Sorry about that, Shack. I saw it after I posted.
