It’s Finished!!

20130929-195505.jpgWith the finish on the table and the wax complete I can attach the tabletop to the base. This is an exciting time for this project, it seems like it has taken a long time to reach this point and I look at the table and see the many lessons that I have learned. I spent a few minutes making some turn buttons then used some screws to attach the table top to the base. I tried out a new countersink that my father in law picked up and it work brilliantly.

As I stood there and looked at the finished product I am very pleased. It turned out well, but that’s not really what makes me happy, it’s the hours of careful hand work, the lessons in patience and challenge of a mistake.  I’m also very happy and thankful for all of you that have posted comments, made suggestions and come along for the ride. It’s been a lot of fun.

    Superb workmanship and table Rich! Can I have mine in Cherry? I just finished my workbench and am back to the basics of the Masterclass.

    Very nice, I love building furniture and seem to be hung up on orders for boxes these days. No problem though it feeds my wood addiction!

    Nice looking coffee table.
    Where did your father-in-law get the counter sink for the brace?

      The bit probably came from an estate sale or auction. I’ll keep my eye out for more. It’s much better than what you can buy in stores. Maybe lee valley has something similar, I’ll have to check.
