I think I saw it here on LJ. It was a vid of a guy building a table. He goes out to a massive log pile and selects a log, cuts of a huge chunk. Saws it on a horizontal mill IN his shop. Then does some more milling on the slab. Puts it in a giant steamer. He drags it out and used a come-a long to bend the sides in for legs and secures them in some huge forms. If anyone has that link I would be most appreciative.

thanks Jack

I’ve figured out the solution. The whole key to this project is the morning coffee.

Well sure, give me 30 days in that shop with those tools and I could turn out … well, maybe a wine bottle balancer.
