Butterfly Table

I built this butterfly table sometime in the ‘70’s. I had a new lathe and I wanted to try my hand at turning. The wood is mostly pine. I think I got it from Jim Black, who ran a sawmill on Hemmenway Road in Leverett. In those days I was still trying to use a lot of hand tools (which made sense, since I had no power tools). The table looks pretty clunky.
