    Nice work.

    I bet that can hold a very, very large cup of coffee.

    Looks Good. How thick was the flat bar you used for the scrolls? As well as what did you finish it with?

    Thanks for the comments guys. The flat bar was 1" X 3/16". I finished it with Rustoleum Hammered Bronze, Rustoleum auto primer for the base coat. I like the look of the thicker 3/16" compared to the 1/8".

    Now, Now Franz, you know nurses don't have tempers. Their a loving caring breed.

    Thanks 1911. I'm really enjoying it.

    Mine claims she is licensed in 3 states to be uncaring and unfeeling unless she is being paid to do either.

    So how long did it take you to learn NEVER ask a nurse for a bandaid?

    The last time I asked for a bandaid, my thumb and table saw blade had had a brief encounter. I got a 1 hour lecture about "paying attention" and heard "that needs stitches" for the next hour. And I ended up getting my own bandaid.

    1st & only time I asked for one, I wound up with the tincture of green soap & toilet brush routine, witch resulted in the need for stitches to close something that could have been handled by a piece of duct tape.
    That was back in the days when she was a surg floor nursling.
    Since then, she has evolved thru Surg, Cardio-Thorasic, ICU, and is now in Infection Control.
    That evolution has given her great ability (in her mind) to dig slivers out with a sewing needle.
    I don't ask any more.
    Of course, she never was a train wreck nurse.
    She does dial 911 real well when I'm layin on the ground with a busted hip in 10* weather, and then run out to the road to wave down the ambulance, while I lay on the ground going hypothermic.
    Hell, she wouldn't even get me coffy in the damn hospital she works in.

    I learned a long time ago that digging slivers out with a sewing needle actually means decimating all the flesh around the sliver to create a crater large enough for the sliver to just fall out. I don't ask anymore either.

    I think RN is an abbreviation for SADIST.
    I'd ask, but she has that Daughters of Caligula Meeting to attend tomorrow night, and I don't want her bein upset for that. She assures me that's a nursing sorority.

    Of course making the table heavy is a sort of sneaky damage control.

    She can't throw it if she can't lift it.

    Do you use plywood underneath the tile on your table?
