Here are a pair of end tables someone ordered from me.
I made sure to point out I was not going to make benches and that they would not be built to hold a great deal of weight. This afforded me much more artistic latitude. I only charged 50 a piece for them since the guy had no idea he was getting more than for legs stuck into a half log. He is a friend though and I really wanted to build these and get the pictures.

The wood is all over here so it was free. I seem to be getting better at fitting my pieces together so it didn’t take as long as some of my past crooked projects have. The art part is easy enough for me but getting the joints on the crooked wood to work the way I want has been a learning experience and a half.

Hope ya like em.

They look nice. Good job fitting those together. I’m thinking how really hard that would be to chose the wood and fit together nice and snug and so they look nice. Great job.

Real nice. Over the years I too have gotten better after a few learning projects.
