Welcome to The Patriot Woodworker Matt! Call this place home. That is one beautiful table my friend! Anyone would be proud to have that in their living space.

I'd like to know, where did you acquire the legs from?

 

Thanks for joining us!

First and foremost, Thank-you for your service & sacrifice Matt. May your hobby continue to impart comfort as needed.

 

Second, Welcome to The Patriot Woodworker. Happy you found us & great to have you here. Many great & talented people here...hopefully one day it will rub off on me.:P

Hope all goes well with the sale of your house and impending move...no matter you're in between shops & projects we look forward to hearing and sharing what has and is going on with you.

 

Beautiful table and especially the slab of cherry. Gonna' guess that has some heft to it? Thanks for sharing it and being here.

I got the legs from eBay from a seller called worldtrade100, I ordered two sets, and out of the two one leg was 1/2” longer than the rest. They ended up giving me a full refund and let me keep them. https://www.ebay.com/itm/8-12-16-28-Hairpin-Coffee-Table-Legs-DIY-Metal-Set-of-4-Home-Furniture-Parts/192664908803?hash=item2cdbb93403:m:m4liL2wtfdwRCNC78N0sQEw

Thank you for your service and, thank you for honoring us by joining our group of woodworkers. 

Your table is awesome. As it darkens, it's going to be even more beautiful.

Grandpadave, it’s not super heavy ~35 pounds with legs I’d guess. Finished size is 45.25x16.25x2x18”. I used threaded inserts to attach the legs so they can be removed to store, move or ship. I actually had this peice left from a slab I’m using to build a river table for a friend so I built it up to sell. The original slab was 10’4” long and ~2.5” thick. I had no plans for it when I bought it last year, but couldn’t beat the price, so it sat in the garage from last May until last month.

So, were those 1/4-20  5/16 3/8?  Just curious (I would ask brass, steel, other, but just because i like hardware :ChinScratch:).

 

As others have said, thank you for your service and thank you for joining us here!  :)

1/4-20 brass inserts because that’s what was in stock at my local Woodcraft. Used stainless screws.

Hey, Matt, double on everything said above. Actively woodworking or not, pour a cup, bring your sense of humor, and pull up a chair.

Welcome aboard Matt.  We have a strong veteran presence here, so anything you want to share or vent, believe me, we understand.  That is a fine looking table.  As far as picking up some tips, it looks like you might be the one to be offering tips also.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
