    Great turn around time.
    And it looks really good too.
    Dinner will taste much better too, I bet.

    Thanks Noel, here's hoping the table makes up for some of my cooking if nothing else!



    March break was busy, lotsa driving, visiting, kids & neighbours playing, laser tag, and the Sportsman Show today.

    but I was able to get a few more tasks completed.


    bottom side of the tabletop got one coat of finish
    &
    the legs got sanded, stained & finished... forgot to take pics though.

    tonight , after many trial & errors of using a Record 405 with a small bead profile sharpened & installed, the skirts received their bead treatment.
    I'm sure I don't have it tuned perfectly, or even close, but the end result pleases me, and I'm sure once I point it out to the wife it will receive an excited "oh, nice"

    Thanks goto Marty for the idea, it is something I will have to remember for future projects. Not overly difficult, not too flashy, but adds a little something, for those who are looking.

          Out with the old, and in with the new!

          well today I decided to surprise the boss, even though she would be walking in the door as I was leaving for work.

          my youngest and I disassembled the old table, and assemble the new one. then a friend stopped by to help me carry the top in & attach it.

          pics tell the story.

          kids noticed it as soon as they walked in after school and really like it.
          my wonderful wife was pleasantly surprised, and very happy with. she does not care about oak vs maple, and doesn't want to change it.

              So, Tom, here it what I gleaned from the pics.
              You took the pics, while your underage child labour put the table together, probably for no or little compensation other than room and board.
              Absolutely shameful to take credit for what others have obviously done.
              The kid shows incredible skills at such a young age, as he probably did all the construction work too, of this really nice table.

              What will you have him doing next?

                he is learning to track down and eliminate daddy's detractors!!



                I'm very lucky to have 3 super helpful boys who love being involved in making, and breaking, anything we can get our hands on.
                while the older 2 are in school, this guy still has 1 1/2yrs before he starts... so by then my young apprentice will have already surpassed me in skills & knowledge, I'll only have age and the wisdom that comes with it left to lord over him.

                if any of the 3 decide they want to use any of the many tools I have been collecting (I've even been learning to use a few!) it would make all the time & money spent worthwhile.



                besides I'm getting as much cheap labour in as I can... come next year I'll be forced to pay no less than $15/hr!

                    Re: Kitchen table(s)

                    Great project, Tom. And thanks for sharing it with us. I have selected this thread as our "Best Build" winner for our June/July issue. Tom received a Ryoba saw from Lee Valley for his work sharing this build with us.

                    I will be looking for looking for another thread to include in our print pages in the next few weeks, so if you have a project going on right now, and would like a shiny new tool from Lee Valley (who wouldn't?!?!) post it in the appropriate section. You can even let me know about it if you would like.

                    Thanks everyone.

                        I'll pass that on to the child labourer (assuming he is the intended target!!) when he wakes up... little guy was pretty tuckered out after push mowing 2.5 acres today.




                        Thanks to Rob for selecting the build & Lee Valley for providing the generous gift.

                        I know there are some serious craftspeople (tip of the hat to Zee Trudeau) on this board, who turn out some fantastic pieces of work. It's inspiring to see what can be done with time & patience & eventually some skills too.
                        Not to mention everyone who gives feedback and ideas, during the build process. It may not seem like much to those of you who take 5mins to say something, but I really appreciate it.
