So in the middle of all the projects I have going my girlfriend decided that "she" wanted to build a kitchen table. At work we have two silos that were built in the 40's. The building, built from pine and cypress, between them was falling down so the bosses decided it should go. When they said they were burning all of the wood that was taken down we grabbed a chainsaw and went to work. So "she" is making a 5' diameter kitchen table with a massive center pedestal built from 9 4"x4"s glued together. My lathe at work is just big enough to turn this pedestal, these are a couple of pictures of the block that will make up the pedestal. I had to cut all off the corners of to get clearance.

It looks like you have a great start to a fine table. The next task will be to reinforce the floor and find 10 friends to help move it into the kitchen! :)

They better be 10 very good friends that you wish to never see again!! Do not show them these pictures before they arrive to do the job. Be sure to tell them you will have unlimited beer available after the job.:rolleyes: That just might limit the hostilities!:mad:
