Last week I had started redoing my slab table That I’ve had sitting outside for the last few years. It had digressed to the point of throwing it, but I just had to try and fix it. I put oak bow ties in the main 3
Cracks , using my small router, and hand chisels, then, put six more smaller walnut
Bow ties in the outer cracks. I shored it underneath with some small metal brackets.
The top is shown with its first coat of tongue oil..
I’ve been working on the new base today,
Planing down some Oak, and to my surprise, a beautiful piece of hard maple!
Shown is a big pike of shavings from my 50 year old planer I bought for $30. Last winter. I was sitting, and admiring my nice pile of shavings, and I realized how perfectly content I am at this moment.
