These nesting tables had broken legs and water damage. I had to make a total of 5 new legs to match and 4 supports and then get rid of water stains on the tops. I’m still looking for some pictures of the “before” as they are on one of my chips (I’ll have to learn to treat them better). All the pieces are walnut and hyde glue was the principal glue used ( actually it is called Old Original available at Lee Valley in Canada). The leg turning was the most difficult as I don’t have a duplicator on my Lathe so it was measure 6 or 7 times and prey.

Looks great!How many hours did it take?

-- I have Carrie, food, shelter, and wood to turn. What else do I need?

Thanks for the comments. I had a 3 week window to complete the job but a lot of time was taken up with either glue, stain or finish drying time. It was a really fun project because the tools use were so diversified and some of the skills required had to be “re-educated” due to lack of practice.

In all honesty, the first two leg turning efforts were failures and ended up warming the deck outside in the fireplace.

Have your say...
