A Little Something for the Gang!

Kevin, from "The Gang" at Ducks, Dogs and Downriggers simply asked me to put my money where my key strokes were.  Kevin has been a loyal follower of my blog for some time and has shown interest in my refinishing work.  He posed a challenge to me recently and asked me to find him a table to be housed in his "Man Room".  It needed to be a certain size and it needed to show some character as this table would be traveling across the country to not only serve as  a TV remote and lamp stand, but it needed to be able to hold its own as a conversation piece.  I think this little beauty will fit the bill!!  I'll let the pictures tell the rest of the story as I was able to accomplish a lot this weekend.

Broken down and ready for some TLC
Nice wood under all that red
I had to break out the fine hardware to get into all of those groves
Came out super clean
Getting ready for stain
A lot of leg work
Nice stems
A teaser picture of where the completed project is headed
I am really happy at how this little table is shaping up.  I still have to stain the legs, put everything back together and get some finish on it, but she has moved along quite well.

Kevin, I hope this little jewel will make you happy brother!  She really is going to be nice!

I can see why they painted it, but I would have disagreed with doing it!

It's looking great! Can't wait to get that little jewel in my man room.
