Im not following any plans, just building it piece by piece, section by section, roughly 22x47 inch top, 18 inches high.
Im using Ash. I have alot of it, and it was very inexpensive.
I dont have much time this week do to the excessive heat, and next week Im working a 9 day stretch, so Ill just try to prepare some rough wood, Ive already prepared (jointed and planed) the leg pieces, and laminated some to get 2 inches square thickness.
Ill work on the table top and the bottom shelf pieces this week, maybe glue it up also. Not sure how much I can tolerate.
Neuro doctor was very specific yesterday with his comments on me pushing it in hot weather, especially using tools.
Oh, on that note, btw, right after I finish the table, Im going to go into the hospital for 2-3 days(I havent given him a answer, Im not thrilled about hospitals) for a treatment called IVIG, hopefully make me close to 100% so I can get back to banging out furniture and redoing some of my house.
Ill shoot pics as I move along this build slowly.
I love the dark stain that was showed on ash recently, would love to copy that color, but this table is going into an all maple colored furniture area, so Ill have to keep it light finish.
Ash is a tough wood, very, very hard. Im learning that today.If I had a lathe, Ill spin a baseball bat out of it right now.
