It took weeks, money, tears and an entire cow hide, but it’s finally finished.

It’s home and I am waiting for the first spill or scratch.

So, the outer veneer is now on, Jason gave me a great help to glue and place it on the frame. Next week it will be trimmed and maybes a start on the wax/varnish/watever wee Charlie protection is chosen. But I have to take it home as the class is finally over. John – the instructor – has given us a few extra weeks, but all good things come to an end.

Finally glued the skin on and the veneer, cut one side of the veneer and will cut the other next week and hopefully get the top veneer on and cut. Getting there!

Things are movin on, got the skin put on the frame, just got to trim and fill in the edges, then the walnut veneer goes on the whole thing.

I’m begining to worry that I haven’t bought enough veneer. I’ll soon find out I suppose.

Here’s some pics, one with Luke – one of the guys on the course – with a look that can only be described as pure awe.

Here is the story so far on the table. I am finishing off the frame, over which I will stretch some stuff called flexiply (the guys at plyco in Fairfield sorted that out) and then over that will be a large sheet of thin american walnut.

Wait n see, here’s some pics so far.

No, not the 90’s all male dance troop, but the carpenter of the same name.

Today I started my furniture making course, showed the teacher my plans and it is possible after all!

Really looking forward to getting this table made, not just cos the ikea mess that it will replace is such that you walk past it and it almost collapses from the draft.

Setting myself up here but hopefully I will be brave (read ‘drunk’) enough every saturday to post a picture of the progress.
