Initially, about 12 people had signed up but for various reasons (illness, other commitments, etc.), only five were able to attend. So I'll try to schedule an additional workshop to accommodate those who couldn't make it last night.
I had space available for 10 people and could have worked with that but, quite honestly, the five who did attend were such a perfect size group/personalities that I could at least try to give individual attention. (I'm NOT a good instructor to a group but I think I do reasonably well on a one-to-one basis.)
We mostly worked with square food picks and matboard to get the feeling of making the table.
Here Judi has her table legs and aprons waiting for the glue to dry:

Pat is applying the glue to the top of her table base:
Two of the ladies who came last night have limited hand strength and were worried about their ability to cut wood. They were SO pleased when they tried my "Super Easy Cutter" from Midwest Products. It's available in the Edmonton area from Luba or through your local miniature store.
After we got most of the table constructions completed, we stopped for great conversation, coffee, tea, cider, and a wonderful gluten-free chocolate cake that Judi provided..
Pat brought two very large bags of upholstery/drapery samples for us to share.
A thought: If you keep those dimensions and make the table legs 2", you will have (NOT) a coffee table but (YES) a child's table!
