The Making Of A Sofa Table

Step 1 – Wood Selection

Since this table is for us, we are able to choose the wood, and luckily we had some hemlock on hand that could work. Table design will coordinate with our simple shaker style coffee table. Painted base with natural wood top.20170325_145648

Gearing Up

First things first – what should Creative Woodworking focus on this year? More galleries? More events? More online? Well, the answer is yes, yes, and yes.

Our 1st event of the year is right around the corner, and luckily for us, it’s close by. 2/11/17 @ The Climb Fitness Center, Mt. Ascutney Resort, Brownsville, VT. If you are in the area, or can be, please join us.

Coming into the New Year, we have 6 galleries to visit and stock up. Today (for example), we were able to visit Long River Gallery & Gifts. They have a new, 2nd location in White River Jct., VT and it is a bright beautiful space. On Main Street, next to the Hotel Coolidge.
