    • Love the design of your tabletop! Did that take you a long time? I've been wanting to try a pattern like that!

      • Hey, Thank You. OMG...seemed to have taken for ever. So many miter cuts and so many pocketholes underneath...LOL I first made the center cross members and numbered them 1-4 underneath (I worked on the underside of the table, not knowing what the top would look like). Then I cut each board to it's respective "section" and labeled them to be placed in the same order - in case they didn't fit in another section. When all done, I glued and pocket holed each section to each other. Found the center and jigsaw cut the table. At 64" it's a huge table. Same with the lazy susan, but I wanted to contrast it with the table, so I went with the straight slats. The top is actually removable with bolts (customers request). I sandwiched the base to the top and put 4 bolts on each table skirt.

    • Wow! What a beautiful table- you really picked the perfect design to emphasize the beauty of the cedar wood. Love the look of the table both with and without the Lazy Susan.

    • You cut that with a Jigsaw!? That's really impressive. I made a round table a while ago, cut it with a router but I couldn't imagine trying to cut it with a jigsaw. Looks awesome, good work!

      • Yes, Thank You. And it wasn't pleasant. The locking mechanism on the jigsaw broke so it would angle about 3-5 degrees so, there was a lot of sanding involved. Good thing I gave myself some room for error. I was going to use the router, but I have never done it and I was nervous, so I went with what I am comfortable with.
