It's like deja vu all over again!
Remember back in 2014 when I built this petrified wood slab table?
It was so heavy, I not only had to enlist some friends to help me flip it over when I attached the top, but a few more to help load it into the customer's car.
I'm delighted to say that I'm building two more - matching end tables, and these are much smaller and easier to manage.
The worst part of this? When I was sorting through the lumber, I smashed my iPhone earbuds to bits.
The first time I made that big frame, I was stumped. Here's a link to read about it.
Luckily, this time around, making the outer frame, and scribing the top to fit around the slab was much easier.
I used the Festool Domino to connect all the miters together, it works flawlessly for this!
I think the trickiest part of making this is gluing up the top frame, since there are no 90° angles.
Next step? Making the "legs" for these tables, which was quite difficult last time. If you think clamping the top frame was a challenge, imagine clamping four sets of odd shaped legs, like the one below.
I have one more week without classes, so hopefully - I'll be able to finish up these two tables and start the upcoming session with a clear head!
