I made a ton of progress on the farmhouse table this week. The top is almost complete and I’ve gotten started on the base.

Pen by Levi
What makes this pen unique is that I made it without a lathe and it is hexagonal along it a length. I made it from a couple of blanks from an oak work top. The blanks both receive a groove down the middle with a 90 degree v bit at the router table and then they are glued together with the grooves aligning to make a hole down the middle.
Despite the fact I could have created stopped grooves, I didn’t and added an end cap out of scrap mahogany. I created a tenon using a plug cutter in the cap which fits in the end of the pen.
The shaping started at the table saw with the blade at 60 degrees. I then planned the final side and sanded to the final shape.

Bowl by Clayton
This is the first bowl I’ve made. It was made with Purple Heart and Guatambu. I learned a lot with the project and I look forward to making another one soon.
