Coffee table Friday
Todays moto" I cut it twice and it is still too short!" So it's Friday and I'm suppose to take a break from carving and do something fun. Well, What better day to start on Cheryls Coffee table that she has been bugging me to make since the bed's completion. She has the plans and all the material list ready. So we go to Menhards and buy the supplies. Easy! I start with the legs. Cut cut cut...I assemble them. Piece of cake! Then I have to add the second shelf. OOPS! I'm off by one inch! ( too Short Of course!) How can this be? Oh! as I reread the cut list. I now know what the "top rest, and bottom rest are meant by. So Looks like I will have to start over and possibly buy more wood. Good thing it was the cheap stuff. To those of you who care about tools..here's one. My Guenevere sanding drum has once again blew out. I love this tool and thankfully, King Arthur Tools recognizes that the soft rubber part will become damaged over time. Cheryl the online shopper has purchased several new ones and they should be on their way. I was hoping to get farther with the table and post more pictures, but since it is after midnight and Cheryl wanted watch a couple of movies tonight. I'll just have to set the project aside. Enjoy your Friday everyone!
