It's finally done, I can't believe it. It's in the house, in the kitchen and it made it before Christmas.
From rough cut lumber to this. This is why I love Woodworking.

Still working on it

Isn't it funny how a couple of days turns into six? I got sidetracked with some other things for Christmas and the table got pushed to the side. Here it is as of about 12:50 Mountain time on Tuesday. The molding is attached to the aprons and the second coat of Arm-R-Seal is on the top waiting for me to come home from work tonight so I can buff it out and apply a third. Then I can move it out tomorrow and bring in the base and get it painted. Lets hope all goes as planned. It won't.

Almost there

Here is the table as it sat last night. I'm still working on a couple of small details, I hope it will only be a couple more days. We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Work is going on

Well the jointer is up and running, I've gotten going with the work on the table I got the top glued up and had to make a small jig to flatten one corner of the legs for a cross section to bolt the legs to the skirt section. The top is looking great the photo is of the bottom, it is so heavy I don't know how I'll move it around. It is at final thickness at 5/4 and will be cut into a square of 63 3/4".
