So, not long ago (only several months…) I drew a second plan drawing and accompanying task list.
I’ve removed the Formica table to the trash (check!), photographed and removed the walnut table to my uncle’s house (check!), worked on painting the coffee table, moved the hoses outside the house temporarily, stacked the wood, picked up the nails and screws and put them in a container, grouped the gutter pipe and fittings, and done some clearing in the outer area to even out the turf- so that we can put in a fire pit.
What’s next? Well…. I’ll have to make a new task list! 🙂
You may be wondering why exactly the Walnut Table is in three pieces. I was wondering the same thing!
I looked it over, and it seems the legs are not simply removable, but broken off from the tabletop (that explains the hideous drips of dried glue which came off with polishing). Also, there are pieces missing (I found an ebay listing for a nearly-identical table, which has bracing pieces between the legs –missing from my table. According to the ebay listing, this table was made in the 1930s). I’ve given some thought to using the beautifully carved legs in a new design, a meshing of pieces to create something new…. stay tuned!
