Falling Water-
Natural maple slab top, sculpted, which originally had a pretty heinous knot on the right side. So I cut that out and fitted a stained glass piece in the leftover space. It fits in with the imagery that has carved “streams” in the top, leading to the glass “water” and down the legs…. or something like that. The base is ebonized mahogany. I tend to like understated design with more of a sculptural look to the finished design. The table is about 65” long and 30” high.

-- Mark Twain said it best, "There is no such thing as an accident but rather the unhappy confluence of poor decisions made by one or more parties."
