« Part 7: rails into aprons Part 8 of Thorsen Table contest series Part 9: where there's a Lumberjock, there's a way... »

I should have made a paper template of the parts for this table (actual size). Until I finally cut everything down to size I didn't really see how small this table really was, and with the off cuts I have lying around (had I been more careful early on) I could have made a pair of tables!

Lesson learned there. Oddly I did this with my first box in order to figure out my cut list (and how to best maximize a tiny piece of cherry I used for it. If only I remembered.

Anyhow, I'm feeling much better about completion this weekend than I did this morning - and I only spent a couple hours working on it today. Sanding, final dimensioning.

Tomorrow assembly - Oh, and "making" the top.

Last glimpse before everythings put together!

Your pile of wood is getting neater, & nicer looking. Your going to make it on time.
