Old Dogs New Tricks – Part Two

We’re making progress, but we’re like a ship’s crew that’s just spotted an iceberg, it’s all ahead, slow. Even with more than a hundred years woodworking experience between us, we’re finding something that seems to be so incredibly simple a real challenge.  Getting it just right is tough.  It just goes to prove that a couple of old dogs don’t, necessarily, know where all the bones are buried.

We started prototyping with this:

The frame has been built from ash and is now “dry fit” together:

Throw the natural edge bocote top on the frame and you have some idea of how the table will look when completed.  “Butterflying” several checks, tending to a few other details and, of course, finishing will require us to mark this as a 2016 project.  But, the good news is, we’re still moving forward.

Happy New Year to All
