This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum. Completing this BB is part of getting the wood badge in round wood woodworking.

This BB is for building a heavy table.

These are generally large tables meant not to be moved often. Since keeping it outdoors will lead to eventual deterioration, it is typically used as a dining table or similar. Done well, they can become an heirloom piece. The tricky part is putting them together without glue or metal, given their weight.

An ancient example.


To get certified for this BB provide photos or video (less than 2 minutes) showing the following:

- Your chunks of wood that you are starting with
- Progress about halfway through, with the hand tools you have decided to use for this
- The final product
