« Part 2: Part Two: Segment One- My pie crust table Part 3 of My "Bucket List" series Part 4: Segmant 3: Finally finished with the table. »

Well it has been interesting since I last posted an entry, I had the table top glued up and the outside profile cut and was starting on the inside when I started this Blog entry. well when I was hollowing out the center, I forgot the wood moves. well to my dismay, the table top cupped a good 3/8” and I was think great now wat. So I put weight on it to straighten it and nothing so I made a custom frame work to go underneath it to suck it flat so I can finish the inside and get to carving. I also made the feet legs aprons and pedestal which all came out nice other than some of the surface checks. So after lots of epoxy and some time trying out mortise and tennon joinery, I had the entire base assembled and glued up. So once I screw the top dow and get it flat, I can carve the pecans in and finish sanding the whols thing. Then comes the finish. I was thinking golden oak with some polyurethane on top of it but I am not sure I will have to play with some scrap and see.
