I visited Spain and Ireland last week, and noticed a few cool pieces of furniture. I didn’t photograph it, but I saw an antique table with a top that was about 6’ long by 24” wide, all one hardwood piece… And a lot of other older pieces with exceptionally wide panels. My favorite furniture were these very artistic chairs, in which the structural members are mostly clear, but the noticeable portions are highly figured: I believe it was a set of 4 chairs in a s...

This is my first post on Lumberjocks but I’ve been following some folks’ projects and the forums for a year or so. About a month ago I took down four VERY large Bradford Pear Trees for my grandfather. It was quite a big job because, like many other ornamental species, Bradford Pear’s have very full crowns and therefore many, man...
