Today i did not have to go into work so i decided to surprise my mum with this table for her sewing machine. She is into quilting in a big way so she needs the extra space that the table provides. I varnished it 3 times with "Australian Jarrah" as well as lots of sanding. I don't have a lot of experience with woodworking so i had to learn lots of new skills to do this. For example, i had to use a router which i have never used before. Routers are brilliant for making precision joints. I think i have the DIY bug now so i am already thinking of my next project. Anyone else into DIY?
