Default A gift for my wife Denise on her 65th birthday.

This table is maple and I made it as her bedside table.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

That's a really nice table Bryan. The glueup of the top is very well matched. Did you sand or scrape that top?

Very kind words, thank you.

Tom, for my Christmas project this year as well as for this table I finally got a card scraper and used it here as well as sanding.
I also bought a Verista card scraper burnisher but haven't figured out just yet how to get it to work. I ended up using the rod burnishing method to get a bur.
I'll bet that Verista figured out eventually.

You get 5 stars and my seal of approval LOL.

Gifts made from the heart are always the best and your craftsmanship is right on. I'm sure she must enjoy it.
Happy Birthday Denise.

Don't fear your tools, pay attention and respect the tools and avoid injury.
