I built this table for a friend whose ex sent her a couple of pieces of Zebra a while back and she asked me to build her a table with it. There was not enough Zebra to make a table out of so, I added some walnut I had left over from my coffee table and came up with this. My buddy Dan Pleska helped me sand the top flat, last August, with his drum sander. Shows you how long it takes me to finish a project, what with winter and life interfering. The “secret drawer” is a late add-on that she requested after her mom passed away in November. I made the curved section from a piece of cherry firewood using a technique I picked up watching David Marks. It really “works.” Get it? WoodWorks? LOL – I better leave the jokes to others and “stick” with wood. (I got a million of em). The table is mostly assembled with pockethole screws. I love new toys! PS: I have a really cool story from this past weekend trip to Woodcraft. I’ll try to blog it.
-- I think of Jack Nicholson as the Joker in Batman when he says "Where does he get those wonderful toys" and ask WHERE DO U GUYS GET ALL THAT WONDERFUL WOOD?
