My only complaint: I prefer tables to have legs at the corner instead of stuff where my feet go.

Marvelous Paul...thanks for sharing that!

The only way to do it if you have the time...very rewarding work. Nice to see what looked like old Chestnut being reused.

I agree with you about things where your feet and legs go...that is hard on smaller tables (or "sill brace" tables like in the video) yet on the larger timber framed tressl tables it can be achieved.

Regards,

j

I needed to see that TODAY. THANKS. My wife wants a harvest table, and this gave me excellent ideas on how to use my own smaller trees and salvage lumber to do it.

The glass is neither half full or half empty. It is too big. But this tiny ad is just right:
