The "Other Half" wanted a small Prep table for the kitchen. I had a plank of Oak out in the shopabout 13-1/2' wide. I clean the old boy up, trimmed off the beveled edges to get things down to fit my 12-1/2" planer. I had a few other old boards, and made a base for this plank to sit on.Next, I took all the parts back to the house, where there was some heat, at least. I added a few details, just to dress things up a bit. Like a bread board edge, and a bead board edging along the aprons.A spokeshave cleaning up the saw marks on the legs. The edges under the aprons are notched to fit around the legs. A hand powered mitersaw was used to miter the corners. A few nails here and there to hold things in place while the glue dried. next up, some stain and varnish.the box beside it is a Toy Box for a family friend. More on that another time… as for that "Hand-powered mitersaw"
