Julie’s Table

Quite possibly my favorite piece to date. Theres a good chance that I just might build this table again to put in our dining room. I had a hard time parting with it to be completely honest.

A mix of hardwood planks make up the top, 6×6 timbers for the legs and some European Beech rounds out (pun intended) the lazy Susan.

Julie had sent me a few pics of tables she liked so I had a pretty good jumping-off point but I wanted to come up with something a little different that  would make this table even more unique. A pedestal base is far from unique, but the table called for it. I came up with the idea to arrange the legs 90 degrees from what their standard projection would normally be and fabricate a custom knife connection for attachment. And I don’t have a saw that can cut the deep mortises in the legs needed to fit around the knife connection…wait…yes I do (insert chainsaw sound)!

This isn’t the first time I’ve had to use the chainsaw for a piece of furniture, but its the first time I had to use it with this much precision. Turns out Im better with a chainsaw than I thought I would be…so I guess I got that going for me?

But anyway..this table is awesome. Thank you Julie for letting me run wild with this!
