I hope that you are enjoying watching my progress as I create the Maple Trestle Table, working out the design on the fly (maybe you’re even following me live on Twitter). It is a very involved build and provides plenty of challenges.
For your benefit I try to document my progress as authentically as possible, showing my intent, technique, and results whether they are good or bad. I want you to feel as if you are poking your head into the shop every now and then to see what’s happening.
Whether you are a passionate woodworker of someone who appreciates fine furniture and original ideas, I hope that you find this build (and blog) to be interesting and informative. But I would like to remind you that while you can learn a lot by reading, you can learn far more by applying yourself.
Years teach us more than books.
– Berthold Auerbach
