Have I mentioned that I hate cleaning the workroom? Have I also mentioned that I will let any minor thing distract me from cleaning said workroom? I do... and I will.
Tessie and friends are still partying. They didn't invite me, so I am doing laundry and in between loads, cleaning the workroom.....Trying anyway.
As I was putting things away, I found an unopened package of four turned legs. I put them in the "wood to be put away" pile and went about my business.
Then I found an 8" length of molding. It also went into the "wood to be put away" pile.
It was fate. How could I fight it when I found a scrap of 3/32" bass wood just big enough for a table top, with just a smidgen of trimming.
So much for cleaning. I left the legs long. They were 2 1/2" to be specific. I took the eight inch piece of molding and cut it into four pieces. Two pieces were 2 3/4" long and two were 1 1/4" long.
I glued the legs and the molding together for the bottom of the table. I used the gluing jig to hold them in place until they were dry. Oh. I forgot to say that I stained all of the pieces before gluing.
I then cut a piece for the top that was 3 1/2" by 2". I sanded the top and rounded the top edges with an emery board. That was stained too.
When the bottom assembly was dry, I flipped the top on its front and clued the legs and skirt piece to the center back.
I then sprayed the whole thing with Deft semi gloss varnish.
I need to sand it and spray again. I thought that I would show you what it looks like now, because it is getting late.
I had to drag Tessie out of the party to pose with the table. She refused to let go of the half eaten pumpkin cookie. She said, "If I give you the cookie, you'll eat it. Stay away from my cookies!!!" So we took the photo, cookie and all.
I have to go back now and either sand and spray the table or clean the workroom some more.....Guess which activity I am voting for?
See you tomorrow.
