farm table- with leaf!

a smaller version of my first farm table- this one gets to hang in my shop for a while. yippee!

the reclaimed pine.

the table that was cannibalized for the leaf apparatus and legs. (the top was partical board with plastic laminate.... one of the few materials i take to the dump!)

the top has a wax finish, but is still waiting for the final coats.

where the table breaks for the leaf- adding another 24 inches.

I just found your blog from Nori at Love2Create and I must pop over there and thank her... you are living my dream. You are such an inspiration and I just don't have the right words to tell you how in love I am of your work. Absolutely amazing... I will definitely be visiting you on a regular basis.

Thanks so much for sharing your work and your tutorials.

I am getting a Dremel for Christmas with the intention of etching... what you do with a router... I am not that skilled with BIG tools... I figure I am safer with little tools for now... I need my fingers for my day job...LOL.

Hugs Deb
