« Part 3: Pie Crust Table-Segment 2: Set back Part 4 of My "Bucket List" series Part 5: Part Three Segmant One: The BARRISTERS BOOKCASE. »

Well I can cross the table off my bucket list. I am extremley happy with the way it turned out for me being a novice woodworker and all.

Here is the completed table with the carvings and the finish put on. Now I was going to carve the pecans in but I thought they would show up better if I burned them in so that is what I did.

When I was making the center pedestal, I thought of trying to turn one but decided against it because I have never turned anything. So I made a Hexagon Base and continued them into the feet. So the feet are one third the size of the table and have mini Pie Crust Tables on top of them which are also 1/3 scale.

So this was number one on my Bucket list and now it is complete. This was made out of one of the hardest woods to use in order to make a pie crust table and that was QSWO. The finish was a Golden Oak by minwax followed by three coats of Semi Gloss Poly and a nice wax. Thanks For reading
