Nice bit of grain

Recommended Posts

Got a phone call out of the blue from via a local wood mill to plank up some oak and have been asked to make a table for outside roughly 12ft x 5ft.


Not sure what it will turn out like but will keep you posted. Not going back until I have made enough seasoned pegs :001_smile:

Wood moved and placed on patio then these pics show setting out table top.

Working out legs and supports.

I have got the finished item in my minds eye (sort of) just need another day too finish braces and the rail underneath to run to both legs.:001_smile:

Don't worry the table turning is sussed, after I have finished bottom as it is not pegged I will lift off rail and legs , stack the top boards with middle on top .Then position legs fix rail /braces put on centre board and peg followed by the outer boards..

To be honest this is my first paid job making anything wood apart from logs, I'm getting right into it taking my time and making sure I don't have to fell a forest to replace any mistakes or move anything more than possible oh and measure twice and cut once is my mantra:001_smile:
