Our beautiful table!
Wyn made us a table. I am soooooo proud of him! I absolutely love the table, it's just right, and sturdy, and gorgeous, and so well made!
I must admit that I was very sceptical - when we started looking around for tables, and saw how expensive the ones were that we liked, and Wyn said he will rather make us our own one. I know time is an issue, and honestly, I didn't know if he COULD make a table - and even when he measured and designed the table on the computer, I was still unsure. Until the wood was delivered and in our garage - then I realised, wow, this dude is serious! ;-)
The actual assembling of the table took him about 4 days. But then the sanding down took ages, as he would just do some now and then. Eventually it was smooth enough to his satisfaction, and this weekend I helped him stain it, to protect and weatherproof it. Glad I can say that I helped too!
Next up are two long benches that will go on either side of the table. I'll wait til spring before I start nagging him about them though - the garage is freezing cold in winter, will be so horrible to have to spend hours working in there!
Super proud of my hubby, I LOVE this table, and love to think that one day we'll pass it on to our kids, they can pass it on to their kids, etc. :-)
