Default Entrance Table

Entrance table I made for a friend. Really enjoyed making it. It took me a while to do it because of my back. It only hurts if I stand so when it got to bad to take I just sat down for 5 minutes then I was good for another 15. I really don't know why that one drawer face is lighter in color. This also the first project where I got to install drawer slides.

That's a nice looking table. When one side is much lighter at the stain stage, I usually reapply the stain til it is closer to a match. I have also found that prestain helps even out some difference between shades. You probably did this, but some stains have pigments, not dye, so if there's a time difference between one face and the second one, the pigment could have settled out. Re-stir if using pigment stain. Prestain helps, but it too has about a 2 hour working time.

The grain on one side may have been more open than on the other piece allowing the stain to soak in deeper. Nice job.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Looks good Greg. Most important is what you neighbor thought. Every project I do I see something I think I could have done better or differently. If I make a mistake no matter how minor it's the first thing I see when looking at it. We tend to be our hardest critics.

Nice job,Greg. How did you fasten the slats in the bottom?

About the face colours: I try to use the same board, when possible. Sanding one piece more than the other can affect the stain, too, so it might be a good idea to sand them together.

I fastened the slats with my Kreg jig.

Nice table, Greg. I have the same type problem with my bay. Stand awhile then sit down a few minutes and then get up and go again.

That is a very nice table.

I hope the following info helps you. I too have back problems and have found that stretches work to alleviate it. My favorite is being on hands and knees and extending one arm forward while also extending the opposite leg out backwards. Alternate between left arm/right leg and then right arm/left leg. Hold each position for a few seconds or maybe a count of 5, then switch. Do 4-5 sets of reps. You’ll be amazed at how much this can help low back pain. There are many others as well. Google some and see which ones work best for you. I think the idea is that the muscles around injured areas tend to tighten in an effort to immobilize it. This adds pressure and pain. If you stretch them out then it reduces pressure. My wife has had spinal injuries and learned these stretches from her PT therapist. She showed me how to do them and it also works for me.
