Amy is my younger daughter. As the younger she was first to ask for, and receive furniture from her Daddy. As a result there is less refinement in the first two pieces I made for her than in my current work: these were designed around special requirements. they needed to serve as side tables, toy storage, DVD/CD storage, remote control storage, etc., etc. The cherry came from a “find” at a local lumber yard: very old and weathered boards stored for who knows how long outside. But they did have character.
The coffee table is more refined: the top consists of a pattern of cut offs that fit like a puzzle. Each species of cut off came from an earlier project, so there is a story in that table’s top. Do I remember the story? Not likely, but I can probably make one up.
The dark piece is a wine cabinet that features walnut from Amy’s grandfather’s farm, and pecan from a tree at her house that came down during Isabel. It holds 2 cases of wine and a dozen stemmed glasses.
