« Part 12: Hey look! A table! Part 13 of Art Prize 2011 series no next part

You can see the final Project Listing up! But I wanted to wrap up the blog too so it wasn’t hanging.

We installed the table yesterday at the hosting venue, Holiday Inn.

And it was kind of an…... event. I ended up waiting at the hotel for over an hour for the glass installer. We’ll just say it was a rough day for everybody. But he arrived, sheet of glass in-tact and we installed it. And then I made the table opening about 1/32” too narrow so we took a chisel to it and fixed it. That was… fun. Yeah, let’s say fun! :)

But it all worked out in the end. Hoorah!

The hotel is thrilled and excited to host it. I am very happy with it and I’ve had SUCH fun talking to people about it. Everybody has been really impressed.

Please check out my blog post on my website about it as well.

Thanks for following me along on this journey! It has meant so much to me to have the support of fellow woodworkers as I trudged through SUCH a large undertaking.

Outstanding work. Eye catching to look into it. It is perfect for the hotel reception. Congratulations for achieving such tedious project. Most people will be amazed much more if they discovered that a woman had made this. Enjoy now for the nice comments…
TIP: A lazer pointer will help you in pinpointing those places that they will be looking at… have it available.
