lots of Christmas projects

I built 6 of these clock frames for sister Karen. They are made of Alder. Each frame has 48 pieces that are double splined. I routed the inside and outside curves using a router and templates.

I also put the first of many coats of finish on wife Karen's Christmas table. This is called a Limbert table and is made of Quarter sawn white oak.  The top is 27 inches wide and 37 inches long. My planer is only 15" wide so this meant that I had to flatten the top using hand planes. The square design and the legs were shaped with power tools, but everything else was shaped using hand tools. All of the fit was done with a hand saw.
