    pedestal table for church

    I just finished this little table for my church. It took me several days. Has a couple misteaks that didn't show up until it was all assembled. Oh, well. I hope I'm the only one who notices.
    It is 28" tall to match another table nearby. The pedestal itself is a solid piece of walnut that was over 3"X5" before I cut and planed. It is cut to a trapezodial shape, narrow in front and wider in back. Top and bottom are white oak with alternating shades of strips of walnut in the middle. I got a hunk of that laminated walnut from Tod a couple years ago and it has been in my 'scrap' pile since then looking for a project.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.
