    Dining table and chairs finished

    12!! you must be mad:-) I actually made 7 this time, made one as a working prototype for design and machine setup, along with extra legs etc. I also ended up with 14 jigs, for the various joinery etc!! I threw them all out at the end - broke the mold so to speak....

    Well Jeff it's a question of opportunity and Carol / work balance. I am away travelling overseas a lot, often with a sales guy that I provide technical support for. That means meetings followed by dinners, back to the hotel late, fall in to bed and do it all over again. When I'm in the office, I...

    That's a shame Rob, but it happens a lot to us dog owners. Our house was way too quiet without Sophie. I think we lasted 4 weeks before finding Remi. Enjoy your travels!

    Shop crawlers always welcome Jim! The chairs had a few tricky things in them, not least the black walnut inlay that runs around the the front and back legs. And not sure if it shows in the pictures but the side rails are not strictly conventional in that instead of an angled tenon meeting the...

    Oh, and by the way, the advise about never making 6 chairs, it's true - what a PITA they are, but, mighty satisfying when they're done..

    Yes, I know, luckily I was able to knock all 6 out in a weekend.....actually it was probably a year from start to finish. In fact if you look in my gallery you will see the original CAD drawing, I really started it in NC!

    Hi Rob glad things are working out for you now. I guess that big dog of yours is getting on a bit, not sure how old he was when we left. We lost Clara the last week we were in NC and we have lost another one since. We now have a pretty retriever called Remi.

    Are you talking York Maine.....I spent 5 years in NE before NC, didn't much like it up there either...... Down south here in North Dorset, one of the nicest counties in England, so not complaining. Carol misses NC though.

    Hi Jeff forgot to answer your question, yes, we lived in Pittsboro, NC when the table was done. The blue through the top and underneath is actually custom glass that I had made by a small glass company off the beltway. The two pieces of glass cost $2000..... This is the original 3D design I did...

    I was called back by the same company that sent me to the US in 1999, so had to go. Sure do miss NC. Lydlinch is a perfect small English village, 400people, great neighbours, lot's of community stuff. Pub just down the road. Cows and fields out the back door. I like it a lot but the weather...
