I built two different items from plans that I found in the September 2009 issue of Wood magazine. One of these was the jewellery/music box that I described in the thread http://familywoodworking.org/forums/...ad.php?t=17385. The other was this side table: Attachment 41563
The one in the magazine was made out of oak. I made one out of cherry. As usual, I will describe the project by extracting entries from my weekly journal.

This week I started a couple of Christmas projects. The first one is a small table that I am going to make out of cherry. I am going to make the table for Margaret and I am going to use cherry instead of oak. I have a lot of cherry that I bought last year from a guy in Pembrooke. Below is a picture where I am starting to prepare the cherry on my jointer: Attachment 41555
In preparing the cherry, I am finding that the wood is not very good. It is hard to get a continuous straight piece and there are twists and punky places that are creating difficulties.

Work continued on the cherry side table:
