Very nicely done—what I would consider a rustic design.

Yes sir! You did it Randy. Very nice job, the table is beautiful and it is even more satisfying I am sure that you used a tree harvested from your own property. I’ve had a bunch of slabs drying for a while now and have been planning on making some coffee tables. I may pick your brain.

That turned out rather well! I do love mesquite. And I’ll bet your shop smells really good.

sweet looking table Randy, it really turned out well. Did you mill the wood for the legs and supports too?

speaking of milling- I may have some spalted maple in my log pile, but I’m not sure. how can you tell?
