« Part 4: Chairs Part 5 of Creative Woodworking series Part 6: Staircases! »

Here are some tables to get the creative juices flowing. The purpose of the blog is to get people to start thinking outside the box – and show the creative (non conventional) side of woodworking. Again, my style is a modern style – so most pics are of a more modern design. I tried to incorporate different design ideas, and a couple different types of tables. Enjoy. If you want to add any other pics down in the comments area – feel free.

for those of you following the blog, or interested in more, let me know what you’d like to see next (so far i’ve done beds, chairs, and tables)

I really like the collection of images that you have here. Some really cool designs. I love thinking “how did they do that” and “who would like that thing”
Where do you get your images?

Thinking outside of the box is an understatement! You are right it can get you thinking.

Definitely outside my box, now I have to try to rearrange the box and my thinking. Oh well setting back
and snoozing can wait for a few more years. Thank you for sharing.

I really like these blogs you do. Many of these designs are right up my alley.
How about revealing your sources for such good designs.
And as far as the next one, what about stairways. I have a personal weakness for cool stairways.

Sweet.
Thanks, that was fun.

Have you seen Seth Rolland’s stuff?

His Oxeye and Dreamcatcher are amazing.

Benches would be cool.

Seth was featured in Fine Wood Working a little while ago.
Here is a slide show of him making some things.
I have always wanted to slice some stuff like he does. Of course, he makes it look easy.
