Thorsen Side table Challenge. March 22, 2007. I’ve been thinking about the making of the side tables for the challenge. I first started cutting some Goncalo Alves, and I am going to finish that table, but, I was thinking about what I could do that would be more dramatic. I’ve also been thinking about calling these tables a Celebration of the Uniqueness of Woods. So my new challenge is making a set of “Twins” using two different woods. The first wood will be American Holly. Holly ...

Part 5: The second of the twins. The Popular table.
