My DIY Table Project


My table!  I finally got over the fear of starting this project when I my frustration at the shortcoming of our old table passed a threshold.  I’d never really done any woodwork before, and my few attempts were nothing I’d want to see three times a day for the next 30 years.  I was scared to try because I didn’t know how to do what I wanted to do.  Luckily I made a great decision that actually parallels what I’m trying to do with Inventors Blueprint: I found an expert to guide my journey.

He broke the project down into manageable steps: he taught me what I didn’t know, warned me of where I could easily screw up and provided encouragement when the going got tough (you mean I need to put 2000 hole in 500 boards?!?).  In the end I build a one-of-a-kind custom walnut extendable table that will be an heirloom.  Just what I wanted!!

Big shout-out to Mike at Creative Woodworks in Portland.  Thanks for the guidance!
