    Nice to hear the project is rolling on Don.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    well the best laid plans of mice and men. didn't get the tops glued up or the legs tapered on the second table. I had to take my joiner knives out and sharpen em so I can edge join the pieces for the tops. Here is the smaller table dry fitted. Click image for larger version.

    Yep, I been dragging my feet. The building wont be ready till sometime in June. The seating for the congregation is scheduled for a June 15 delivery so I been trying to time thing to be done about the same time. I'll work on it pretty much full time between now and then.

    Looks like the whole table is missing. Where's the pix? No pix; never happened...
