I am not going to apologize.
I am just not.
I have hardly even been to my house this last three weeks.
Regardless, had time to blog.
Between the farm and the second cutting of hay, we have been running on very little sleep.
My house is a mess. I need to do dishes.
I ate my yogurt and granola out of a mixing bowl this morning.
Anyway, on Saturday, when Manly wrapped up one of the fields and could not start on the next just yet, due to weather.
That left us with a free afternoon.
I am sure there was something on the farm that we could have done, like pull weeds or fix equipment.
Or we could have slept.
But, in our sleep deprived state we thought it would be fun to build furniture.
We have been wanting to make more furniture, ever since the bed we built.
We have a spot that we thought a little table might fit.
After looking at some yard sales and craigslist and not seeing what we wanted, we decided to build this table from Ana White's site (the same site we got the plans for our bed)
We had the supplies, but just had not built it yet.
It started where Manly said "Well, lets just cut out the wood" and then we said, "well, lets just put this bit together" and then less than two hours later we had a table.
Obviously, it still needs to be sanded and stained and painted and such.
I am currently waiting for the wood filler to dry so I can go sand some more.
I am sorry about the lighting. Its kind of lousy in our little shop.
The boards are propping open the table, because we had to order the Drop Leaf Supports since they were not in stock at our local hardware store.
I am thinking of painting the legs and shelves and then staining the top.
I have not stained much, and certainly have not stained something like a table top, thats supposed to hold up to spills and food splatters.
Any hints or suggestions?
I will post more pictures of the table once its finished, although, I am not sure when exactly that will be.
Especially, since I need to research staining table tops...
I also hope to be back soon to post pics of the farm, we harvest the peas soon!
