Here's what David says about this stage of the process:
The very first stage is picking out the appropriate boards, planing the edges and gluing them together. The three boards measure 38" wide and will be cut to the 8' length. In terms of the width, it is easy to cut down to the 36" wide we talked about, but would you like the extra 2" width?
We promptly told him that, yes, we didn't mind an extra 2" of space at all. More room for more food!
So cool! We can hardly wait to see the next step.
Have you ever had a custom piece of furniture built for you?
