I am back living in Chewelah for the time being. Relocating south to Spokane for a single, three credit college class, (all that financial aid would cover) just wasn’t worth the move. Fall quarter might become a different story, but for now I have decided to go back to work, and in turn build on stability and security.
For the past few weeks I have been working again at Quartzite Mountain Nursery here in Chewelah. I am on the loading crew again, driving equipment and loading refrigerated trucks. The pay is not like it use to be, but the long hours are making up for that. Weekly income has been long overdue in my life.
It’s been quite some time since I worked on a worrd project. After making all those beds: the king bedframe, the queen bedframe and the bunk beds. And after making my desk, the table and the bench, the last project I had begun was a coffee table. Lately I have been wanting to get back to working with wood. It had been a couple of years since I last worked on a wood project. This table was the last project I had begun, so finishing this piece was where I had to start again.
Here are two pictures of the sanded table top:
Table Top #01
Table Top #02
I still need to fabricate how I will create the legs, but I have a couple of ideas.
