Found some wood, measured it, cut it, put some glue in spots, put some screws in spots, put clear liquid on, let liquid dry, stepped outside of the shop, closed the door, open the door…..boom…got a table.

Pretty much a parable of the second marriage. I would love to learn more about the honeymoon. Tell us more about the romance that led up to such a beauty?

I used birch, maple, and threw in a few pieces of hickory for good measure. Now, I have have a question that maybe somebody here can answer. The dark brown wood I used is maple, is this a soft maple? I am familiar with the regular hard maple, but this wood is somewhat soft and very dark. A guy had it as leftovers from a project and told me it was rustic maple. I have seen rustic maple before and it didn’t have the even darkness that this wood has.
Thanks for the compliments. My favorite pieces of furniture have always used a strong contrast with their colors so that’s the direction I normally take (you can tell by my other project). It took me a day to draw the table out and decide which wood to use and after that it took me 20 hours to complete all the necessary work.

Very, very nice looking piece of funiture. If the table is magic than the shop that built it must be truly magical. Where can I get one of those “magic” shops and does it clean up after itself?

In order to get a magic shop you must first find a magic door (generally located in a wardrobe) and walk through it. Here you find a shop full of wood and tools, it’s all yours, the wood bends by thought. Draw a picture with your mind…walk out…come back in…zowwie! It’s all done, and there is a talking beaver that cleans the mess up. Said something about feeding the kids.
There you have it. The secret is now out!

And THAT’S where the parallel to the second marriage ends …

im so sorry that it took so much work to have this table appear, and to just have some wood show up, gee what a lucky guy…ive discovered that if you put a cup of sawdust outside of your shop door, within 24 hours, boards will appear…its amazing…good luck with your future attempts…;)
