This is the construction details for my table for the LumberJocks / Popular Woodworking Challenge.

Dads sub series for the tables that our family were going to make was the ”The Uniqueness of Wood”,. We all tried to make tables from unique wood, but I wanted mine from Cherry. So there.

All of the projects are here: Other items in this series are my brother Dan's Yellow Birch, Dad's Goncalo Alves Table, and Dad’s Holly and Popular Twins The final one is my sister Karrie's Curly Beech

I’m pounding the pegs into the breadboard ends. I using a chunk of Osage Orange as my hammer.

I’m now cutting them off to the right length.

I’m not usually this happy when I’m running the tools.

Gluing the breadboards on. This is my clamping picture of the table

These are the shelves for the six tables. Mine is on the lower right.

This is the top of my table.

My table is on the right
The two on the left are my dad’s Popular and Holly Twins, and the next one is my brothers Yellow Birch. Then mine, Front row is Dad’s Goncalo Alves and Karrie’s Curly Beech

Mother is starting to put the tables to use:

Great table Dave… guys are lucky to have your Dad showing you how to work with wood. It’s something you’ll carry with you for the rest of your days. The skills you learn now will serve you well when you have your own place some day….Good Luck!
