Busy Spring- Trestle Table and Many Windsor Chairs

Lots of things going on in the shop these days.
I am building one of my Trestle Tables w/ Leaves as well as around 20 chairs for a few different orders.

My brother, Steve,  has been helping me out a bit lately with the work load. Thanks Steve.

all of the parts of the trestle table get a hand planed edge treatment. Just one of the details that set it apart from a  factory made table.

Below are a couple of shots of my new project boat. I have had plans to build one of these for 10 years but this one became available at a good price.  The name is Siri and it was built in Africa in 1981.  That's when I graduated from high school.  

It is hard to believe that we were in a deep freeze not long ago.
Enjoy the new weather.
