The wife said I need a small writing table for my office. I would like it ASAP. I said OK, and started planing some Oak I bought 2 years ago. The table took me all day Saturday and part of the day Sunday. I was pretty much done and she came out and Said, EW – I need those knot holes filled in Dear. So I bought some Epoxy and and watched a few videos. Taped the back of the already completed and finished table. Turned it over and re-sanded the top. Poured in the Epoxy and hoped for the best, It ran out onto the driveway, down the legs and so forth. So I let all of that dry. Re-taped the back better a few days later. It turned out pretty good but still had a place or two that the epoxy sunk or a big bubble was. So I sanded it down some and poured another batch. Now it is Saturday the next weekend. Top is sanded, legs re-sanded and everything finished off again, Table is in her office and she wants to wait a few days to let it cure before she starts using it. She says she loves it and that is what matters. In the mean time I have a mantle still needing a back board and the Grand son is over and we are making an organizer for his Games. I love life in the shop.

Nice work. I like what you did with the curve on the legs and the stretcher set behind the curve. It is a nice look.

Nothing is good as good motivation…. at the end of the day, you made your wife very hapy.

Nice looking table. Glad you keep trying because it turned out great. I’m sure she will love it forever.
