Yes, I finally made the table top to make my pool table convertible to a dining room table for 10! And back again, with 3 easy, ordered panels! (hence, #1, for the Head of the table, where I sit) I even bought a router for the job (cheaper than renting!).
Now mind you, this thing gets like a C in High School shop class. A lipstick lesbian would shriek in horror at the sheer brutality of it. It will be dutifully constantly draped in a pad and table cloth at all times lest some queen see it and think it is prop for a work-shop porno. But for now I like looking at my "handiwork".
Now, I need 10 chairs, on the tall side, and a new chandelier, because the one that is there HAS GOT TO GO, even I am mortified by it.
And then the first dinner party.
