Dining Room Table – December 2008

This is my Christmas present for Tish this year.  She’s wanted a bigger dining table for a while now.  This was a really fun project and all the kids and Tish helped with this one.  It took 6 days from start to finish.  I took pics of the entire process.  Enjoy…

This is what we started with.  A quick trip to Home depot  (followed by 3 more trips to pick up small things I forgot or didn’t account for)
