Coffee Table Day 1

We woke up early and made the box to support the coffee table top that Erik glued together yesterday.
I'm used to using much smaller drills and much less force, but I did alright : )



By the time we had the legs made and ready to attach to this box, my body ached and it was time for more Advil and a nap on the couch.  It was pretty bad this time.


Erik plugged away without me, and we have a coffee table!  We plan to take it to my Dad's shop tomorrow to stain it.  Erik's a little nervous about getting the color right because the poplar has a green undertone, but here goes nothing.



At the other end of the garage, this is the base of the hutch that Erik is building for the kitchen.  Nice, huh?

You guys are just amazing with the carpentry projects! I can't wait to see them finished and in their new spaces. I hope you feel better soon!
