Drill, the sand it out. I'm going to make then a couple of inches deep. I'm going to decide the number of cups after I find the log I'm going to use. My wife has a ton of sealant and varnish left over from her last project, so I'm thinking this is going to be an outdoor table.

Before anyone ask, yes my wife refinishes furniture for fun. She'd been doing it for years and loves it.

For rounded bottom holes use a bowl and tray bit in the router.

I'll give it a try. I' still looking for a log to use. All of the fallen logs around me are eaten up by insects or looks terrible.

There are people who sell live edge slabs if you can't find something for free.

I think that's the route I'm going to have to go. I wanted to find local wood and produce a few of these for friends and family. If I have to buy the wood though that could make the difference in how many I try to make.

Default And

I have a cabinet shop that I get all my "project" wood at.
They always have some scrap walnut, gancaloave or a nice tigermaple.
Just show up and ask around the smaller shops.
You may even make some new friends.

I'll check them out. I'm headed the opposite direction this weekend, and there's a shop by my inlaws I'm going to check out, but if they don't have what I'm looking for I'll head down to San Antonio.

I'm trying to remember something for a project my son is working on.

It's a card game that plays on selfishness.



It goes something like this:

You both have a red card and a green card and maybe another color card, I can't remember.

If you each give each other a green card you both get the same number of points.

If one gives a red and one gives a green, the red giver gets points but the green giver loses points.

If you both give red you both lose points.

You have a set number of exchanges perhaps.

I can't remember if this is all or if there is another color that factors in.

Anybody have a source on this?

I think I learned it in psychology or somewhere.
