I started a new project today – a dining room table for Mary Poulson’s new house. My plan is for this to be a trestle table, with a cherry base and a maple top. This evening I got started by planing and cutting the cherry boards to size for the trestle base.  I’ll update this post as I make progress. UPDATE: 13 April 2014, Turned the cut pieces into the finished cherry base today.  See the second picture in the gallery above. UPDATE: 19 April 2014, Went to Sharp’s Lumber on Little Squam Lake this morning and got some beautiful curly maple boards for the table top.  When I got home, I planed them, squared and biscuited the butt joints, and glued up the main surface.  The top has beautiful figure in it! UPDATE: 19 July 2014, Gave table to Mary at her retirement party yesterday.
