I took a trip to the lumberyard a few days ago and picked out some walnut to start the tables. I had them sand everything and mill a straight edge on each plank so I could use the table saw. I also had them mill the exact measurements of the table legs while they were at it. The legs are from a thicker material and it would have been challenging to mill that myself. I LOVE getting a batch of new wood like this. It smells great. Full of potential.
