Kitchen Table

Kitchen Table-Maple and American Walnut
Hand rubbed Tung Oil finish

I feel like making a kitchen table is a big deal.  Its always been something that has intimidated me since I started building furniture.  Families are made around the kitchen table.  The conversations that are had, the delicious food that is served, the homework and science projects that are done around a table make memories for a life time.  I hope that the family who now owns this will thrive and prosper, and maybe, this table will be a pretty thing that stays with them for a long time.

This is the clamp up for the table top.  It was done in three steps to make sure everything stayed flat and equal.

This is the mortise and tenon that holds the legs to the table top.
