On the east side of town, a contractor threw up a set of apartments. They're all very nice and sit right next to the city's new Greenway Project. Each apartment features a balcony and each balcony was made of wood. At the end of the build, there was a small stack of 2x6 remnants left over. Through a friend in-the-know, Chucked Wood inherited this stack and began searching for a project to match. It was found as we finished the build for the family that now spends time around this table:
They had friends that were also "in the market" for a table, too. By the end of our first chat, it was very clear that this family knew how to celebrate the little things in life often overlooked by others. They use words like "massive, cool, warm, one-of-a-kind & able to take a beating" when describing their dream table. They wanted a piece that would not only withstand the chaos of two growing boys but one that would be there for future confirmation dinners, graduation lunches and wedding feasts. Family is important to this, well uh... this family.
So, this 4'x8' piece was designed, created & held together with approximately eleventy billion Kreg Jig pocket joints, delivered then... beaten up, engraved, distressed by the fam:
|event the dog got a piece of the action.|
|Even a wide angle can't contain this 4'x8' beast!|
Here's to life!
|Just a small sampling of the details work the family created.|
|Ain't it the truth?! And, note all of their hand prints in the center. Awesome.|
|The Tic-Tac-Toe grid is for nights when they have peas & corn for dinner|
|These were a score, & still function!|
