See, this is what happens when two nerds get married and have little boys.

Making a new table

Phase 1
Thanks to Victor Barranco for the turn-a-hardwood-floor-into-a-table idea. We bought 42 square feet of Brazilian Koa (also called tigerwood) flooring that is about to become our dining room table. Our old one is cracked an falling apart. Sometime soon, when you come to our house for gastronomic experimentation, you won't have to worry about the table falling out from under your plate.
In case anyone is wondering what the square hole is, that's from when we were still contemplating inlaying tiles for place-settings.

Fun! I'm anxious to see how it turns out. What are you using for legs?

you could have left the hole there and put a trash can underneath or a dog.
then you could just shove all the crumbs in the hole.

it would be a sort of barbarian-chic thing

Lol! But as we're trying to teach the kids to NOT be barbarians, I don't think that would have worked:)
