Home made table
« on: December 21, 2016, 07:42:30 AM »
The future son in law came by yesterday and we got his table together.  I have never even thought of building anything this way, there is not one nail or screw in this table.  its put together with pegs or dowels and glue.   I think we are going to get along just great..

If I'm not having problems,, I'm not doing it right..

That is a fine looking table that looks like it will be around for generations.

It's another fine job WD.  It's great to work with new ideas later in life and fun to have somebody to do it with.

Nice job!
It is called a "trestle leg table".

A mortising machine is an amazing tool.  The ability to drill square holes in wood opens up a whole new world when doing woodworking projects.

I love the simple Shaker style. There is an elegance in it's simplicity. Very functional.

He put the table on the porch and he has really been busy with work lately.  He needs to sand it down some yet and put a stain on it..  right now you know how a table sitting on a porch is.. a catch all and its stacked up and piled high right now.. Yes, when he gets it going again I will get a picture of it and post it..  ;)

well lets see if a old dog can learn a new trick..
 
the stain was honey.   the daughter saw the table and decided it was an indoor table and the old one went to storage..  can't wait till the next shop project..

That came out good, I like that color.

Next time you resize use 600 X 450 and it should work fine.
