Tavola undici

Table eleven! And I finished it by twelve thirty. It's hard to tell if I'm getting more adept or they are getting less complex. Nah, I think I'm getting faster. 

Lots of off cuts and saw dust.

And I have some great news: there is definitely enough oak for all the tables! I just uncovered a few extra bundles I didn't know I had. We buried them beneath other planks and beams when we unloaded everything from the truck. I'm so happy! I was getting worried.

Wouldn't all these patterns make a great floor?  Ugh, I would love that! I'm saving that for "one day".
I finished table number eleven just as lunch was being served, the most delicious pasta al pomodoro ѐ aglio. Yes, this dish will be served at the restaurant, and you'll most likely be able to get it for about eight bucks. Excited yet?
