Rummaging through my collection of hickory sticks, I came up with four that I thought would go together. Next came selecting the maple for the top and skirt. I like to work with "wane edge" lumber as it makes each piece unique and reminds us that it came from a tree.
It also fits nicely with my short attention span, as I get bored quickly with repetitive duplication. Each piece is different and has it's own personality.
I had high hopes for this piece but, in the end, it turned out even better than expected. At the present time, its my favourite.
I delivered it to the shop the other day and was approached by a man as I unloaded it from the truck. He was quite excited about the table; that's got to be a good sign.
I hope it turns heads even more in the shop window.
