It's in the house!
Notice how it fits the rug G picked perfectly. Oh!
G had a long evening working and I hope she is actually sleeping soundly while I write this. There is not much I can do from here to help, except distract her a little.
I should not mention this, but the table was 2 inches (5cm for metric campers) too high so I had to chop a bit off the legs. You can't really do that with a shrug I guess. The table top is removable, so the whole thing is really quite easy to move G!
Don't worry honey, we will buy chairs. Now I just need to devise a way to store my recipes in the kitchen. No more oil fumes. I need the brain cells for my old age, or do I? Hmmm. (Scratch)
Postscript from G: B, now that the dining table is finished I recommend that you filter our blog, using the 'Dining Table' link on the right hand side so that you can read everything that we have posted about it, from the bottom to the top.
This way, you can see how your project unfolded, from the very beginning - from our discussions about its design, your trip to purchase the timber, your work in progress and right up until last night, when you posted about the final piece in situ.
I think that it makes a really lovely read - if reading it doesn't give you a real sense of satisfaction about a good project, well done, then honey...
...I am off to fetch the skillet!
