It’s a table! :)

The legs aren’t glued together yet so if you are wondering why the bottom blocks are kind of crooked there is your answer….

A view from the underside. You can only see the brace if you stuck your head under the table, but I still wanted it to be a little fancy. I’m going to sand it and shellac it shortly.

A view of the side brace up close. Both sides have the compass in the middle.

I am SO excited that it is standing on its own! :) Yay! Now only a few things left to do- time to go to work!

Wow. If only I could vote in the contest, you will be the winner. Now, I can see what those blocks of wood are intended for…. By the way, how will you transport it. It seems that all of the parts of the table are detachable. I like your idea on the compass in the arbor..

wow, amazing! Nice to see that you’re finally nearing the end. Must be a relief to you after many, many days of work on this.

Awesome, Lis! I was wondering, as Roger was – how the heck are you going to move it??

Hahah. We just lifted it. It weighs less than 400 pounds right now and after we put glass on it, the total weight should be around 550 pounds. Maybe I just hang around strong friends, but two people can lift it and four people can easily lift it.
