Treadle Top Table Edge ~ Done

Derin has been working some more on the treadle table top.  This is what he did on Monday and Tuesday.

He got a new router bit just for this project.  It gives an edge on the top and bottom of the table top.  He built a fence on his table to keep the edge of the top running straight.
    



It's hard to see both the top and bottom edge of the table top.  Click on the picture to zoom in. 






The top is sitting on the cast iron frame.  Isn't it going to look nice?







Today he worked with the hand tools to clean up the edge, fussy work.  The wood in the table top is starting to look beautiful with just a light sanding. 400 grit is starting to bring out the beauty. The higher the grit the more beautiful the results. The fussy work allows the wood to be the very best it can be.
