Birch stump table project.

Postby soldiersquared » Mon Oct 24, 2011 9:43 am

This project took about 5x one hour sessions with my neighbor Sharad.

Special thanks to Chris O. the woodshop manager for the advice and the
lending of some very efficient tools.

Also my apologies for keeping his spoke shave hostage even though there
were no ransom demands. I'm more of a hobbyist kidnapper.

Hey, if you're looking for a ransom, I seem to recall you don't drink beer, so... I got nothin'. I can say: I'm delighted to share the right tool for the right job to anyone willing to use it to such great effect.
