Many of you all have contacted me on getting in on this Thorsen Greene Side Table. Nothing more would give me any more pleasure in doing this. BUT I am currently without any shop or garage I can work outof to produce a fine piece as many of you are doing. Another reason is I am not able to get out in this cold weather due to an illness I had a year and 1/2 ago. This ilnness left me with many side affects, that I wish I was without. but doing the wood burnings I do makes me feel like I am still in the same league as the rest of you, and that makes me feel like I am a winner. Many times all I’m able to do is craw under neath a cover and sit or lay around but when I do feel good I like to spend my time with my new hobby of wood burning. I will be making frames for many of them as some of you have asked and I will be trying to sell alot more in the summer month, as I can get around a little bit better. Thank you all for having the confidence in me to be able to produce such a fine peice of furnature. I will be back to work as soon as the weather breaks and keeps a warm feeling that I can get out in. Your Friend and Fellow LJ Jim

Jim: I want you to do a wood burning of the Thorsen table. You don’t have to make a full size one, just give us a great picture. Shade it, color it, frame it and enter it into the challenge.

I agree with Karson, a woodburning of the table would be great!
