Hard work from hubby, lil bro & pappa on our huge dining table that we’ve carried from one end of the country to the other (literally 😂). Much more manageable and still seats 6 people! More work to finish but it’s almost there!

So this table was bought nearly 15 years ago, when @loustoss 's husband sent @steevanglover our way, starting an amazing friendship. It was 2m long by 1m wide 100mm (4inch) thick, and had not a single 90 degree angle, very "rough" cut. Two rough cut "legs" with bracing timbers. It rocked like a ship in a cyclone unless I put angle brackets on it, but we loved it for the memories, and the potential. We have moved it from brisbane to melbourne (1800km's), melbourne to brisbane, two local moves in brisbane, brisbane to mission beach (1600km's), a local move, mission beach to stanley (3600km's), and back to melbourne. Whilst it's fine to lift flat, it does not go through doors like that, and become "hard" to move. So we finally shrunk it, 1.5m long now, and have "slotted" the "legs" into an "X"...oh, and made some "flat" surfaces and 90 degree angles while on it. Still a couple of things to do, but it's a more "reasonable" table, although took 50mm off and it's still too high. Not bad for a "soft" company accountant though. #wip #table #project #woodwork #diningtable #furniture
