With the right blades a lot of nice things can be made with a table saw.

Charlie I am confused. Was it the beautiful blue cover that was made wrong or the carving block? If it is the cover and you do decide to cut it yourslef, remember to leave enough all around the edges for a hem. So if you need a 12" then the measurement would be 13.5 " on all sides. You need a half inch for the first turn of the material and then an inch for the second turn so that there are no raw edges. I have the feeling that they cut the material to your measurements, but failed to take into account the hem.

You know Charlie, I'm thinking there was some confusion regarding the overall size if the cloth, I suspect your friend misunderstood and included the fringe trim in the overall dimension. But you know what? The table is so lovely and the cloth really is beautiful I don't think anyone will notice. Everyone will know what was in your heart especially the ONE who matters most!

I guess I am just getting old. How did the problem go from a beautiful cloth of religious significance to a chopping block? Is the cloth for a chopping block? Please someone enlighten me.

I am sure nobody will ever know the difference and it looks just fine and nice as is, but never the less I wanted the thing to be bigger
Charlie, your work is wonderful! Why would you want the cloth bigger? It would hide your lovely handiwork. Is that a stand for the Torah? If so, I'm guessing God likes wood better than fabric. Maybe the "mistake" is a gift from Him since you don't seem to be the least bit vain about your own work. Someone has to make sure it gets shown off.

Charlie, it looks lovely. I would not worry about it, it seems that the cloth is proportional to your stand. Nice work!
