>Mother’s Day gift…………..

>

One of my gifts was a new top for the pool table, sturdier than the piece of blue foam board that used to top it (supported by stacks of books in the well of the table).  I told my son I would like a piece of good quality plywood with a finish on it.  He went one step further and put strips around it to make it more sturdy.  Now I have a firm surface to cut on that looks like a piece of fine furniture!  Without replacing the rubber the table isn’t usable as a pool table so I am guilt free using it for cutting.

I have added my ruler rack to the end and moved the mat in so I have some space to the left to support the fabric that I’m working with.

The redbuds are in full bloom now but this photo was taken at dusk yesterday and doesn’t show the beautiful color.  I’ll have to take another photo today.

  7. >That looks great and so convienent. I put a piece of MDF (6×4) on an old dresser. It gives me lots of drawer space plus hangs over about 2' on one side giving me space for more storage. I like using furniture for sewing.

  9. >What a fantastic son. That was really a great gift and a great way to use the pool table that isn't. I love the red buds. Sure wish I had some here. I have a flowering crab blooming right now and it is an old one so is quite large.
