    John, a bad day in the shop is better than a good day at work any time!

    It looks great Brian. I hope your house sells soon so you can give the table a new home soon.

    Well all sanded and shellac finish, trouble is my house sold and I have to be out end of this month, I have to start packing shop!!
    Have drawer fronts to size, am going to get them done in next couple days, as the weekend means everything will be getting boxed. I don’t want to rush it, and make mistakes. If I cannot get them done I will just pack table and have to start in a few months after we find somewhere to settle. I put two shelf rails as through tenons, the middle one not, just felt it added character. Really happy overall, joints are solid an only one is not as tight as I would like, but only I will ever know.

    That’s coming along a treat Brian – all nice and tidy and that Oak’s really singing in some of those shots. Good luck with the house move and with setting up a new shop to work from.

    Only handles and a bit of final fitting with the drawers (the shop has to be packed up today and bench disassembled) Great learning experience, I used Paul’s method from the tool box drawers for the drawer backs. Overall very pleased and so too the commissioner, my wife. Bonus was she bought me a plow plane to complete the grooves on the drawer bottoms!!
