    I finally finished my table, it was a huge learning experience. I learned way to much to sum up how I feel about this project, but I can definitely say it helped me grow tremendously as a woodworker.

    Thanks for the compliments, it is starting to shape up finally. You are correct it is made with walnut, I managed to get 60 very ruff board feet from some guy on craigslist for under $3/b.f. I wish he had more i could have bought.

    Yes by bench is set up for me being a leftie, it works fine for me. I tend to watch a piece of Paul’s videos then go into the workshop and try out what I just watched. So im not watching and doing at the same time and it works out pretty well.

    Paul is definitely the best teacher I have seen for woodworking, about the only drawback is me makes everything look so easy. Paul take 5 minutes to chop a mortise it will probably take me 30 minutes, but that is why he is the teacher and we learners.

    I’m getting really close to finishing, just sanded of the final coat of finish on the base, and am about halfway through putting finish on the top.

    It is finally starting to come together. The top still needs some flattening but the finish line is near. If only i wasn’t going in for back surgery tomorrow this could be finished this month…. owell such is life

    I already have my tops glued to my aprons, so it would be difficult to clamp them into a single top. I will try to remember that if i ever replace this top.

    My only thought is to lay one giant straight edge across the entire top 34″ or so and keep going till it is level across with no twist. I have also realized that taking more care during glue up to prevent twist is worth its weight in gold.
