« Part 1: The Design Part 2 of Modern changning table with hand tools series Part 3: Making the panels »

The wood from this project is walnut and it came from a Craigslist add from an older man who was moving from Tucson to Missouri. He’d had the wood sitting in his shed for a decade or so. I ended up getting it for about $2.50 a board foot. My one concession to power tools for this project is a thickness planer. I flattened one face of the rough boards with hand planes then ran the other side through the thickness planer. I then planed each edge square and parallel. Next step gluing the panels
