This week I spend time during my trip editing the Nakashima Inspired Dinning Table. All chapters have been edited from the beginning until now.
Also got in the hardware so I can start the wooden body planes once this project is finished.
This week I worked on applying finish to the base and the extensions to the table top.
This week I did my final surface preparation on the trestle base and drilled the holes for the tapered dowels to hold the top to the base.

Over the past few day I tackled shaping the trestle and wedges. This update is out just on the heels of the last because the next weeks worth of work will be a lot to talk about. Didn’t want to have all this great information lost.
• I worked on the cutting and fitting the wedges on the Trestle.
• Worked on the plans for the table.
• Spoke to the San Fernando Valley Woodworkers Club and got some Avocado lumber while I was there.
