The whole reason I joined Lumberjocks was because I wanted to get some information about the Thorsen Table Challenge. After spending countless hours here I decided I better at least attempt a table.

SWMBO said that I could only build a table if the wood choice matched the bedroom furniture (The Wife’s Dresser). So sorry Obi, but it is going to be made out of pine. I decided to add some Cedar for a contrasting wood

Just to do something different I went with a brick laid pattern.

This is the top glued up and the bread board ends attached, along with the aprons and a few other pieces.

Unfortunately as a school teacher I have to start getting my students ready for the end of year testing. That’s going to take up a lot of my time for the next couple weeks, so I don’t know how much more I’ll get done for awhile.

Looking good, Make the students pay for causing you to miss out on all of the good stuff.

Thank for entering the race. I think you should make it on time. About 5 weeks yet. I like the brick parquet.

Thanks for the kind comments.

You know Karson some days I almost (ALMOST) wish they would let us use corpral punishment in schools.

Oh well, that’s what having a shop is for right. To help relax and unwind.
