The table base begun in the previous post is done, delivered, and paid for.

The holes are drilled and the rivets set, first they are heated with OxyAcetylene torch, then while still glowing hammered to shape.
The last piece to be cut and drilled is for the tops of each leg, so that a heavy screw can be put into the bottom surface of the maple burl table top.
Finally, the finished base with our cat (who apparently sees herself as a feline Vanna) helping.
