On Monday morning I dropped off the components for the table at the finisher`s to have them lacquered. This table has been one of the most intense, demanding and exhausting projects I have worked on. I had a deadline I really wanted to meet so this table demanded the most of me. In the last 4 week I have worked 250 hours on this project. This was on top of my regular job. During this process I consumed 12 liters of Coke and Pepsi (for me that`s a lot), averaged 5 hours of sleep per night, and lost 15 lbs.
Thus far I have posted some of the process involved in building the panels for the tabletop. I have been simultaneously building a perimeter ring and base as well. I will finish writing about the panels and then post about the other components.
I say that it is only sort of done because once the components are picked up from the finisher there will still be a lot of time spent assembling them all. Hoping to get it all done by the 14th to have it submitted in the Southern Alberta Woodworker`s Association woodworking exhibition.
