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

For this BB, you will make a light dining room table!  You're aiming for a table that is made fully from round wood and uses no metal or glue.  Greenwood construction techniques or wedges could be helpful.  


(source: ebay.com)

Minimum requirements:
 - at least room for six place settings
 - no metal (screws, nails, etc)
 - no glue
 - no dimensional lumber
 - lightweight yet sturdy

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
- List any power tools you used (Otis would love it if you only used hand tools)
- The final product
 
They weren't very bright, but they were very, very big. Ad contrast:
