A variety of projects here. The round card table in mahogany has a coopered and veneered apron with a solid top. The pair of Penbroke tables (one shown) in walnut uses shop-sawn veneer drawer fronts. The Cherry Queen Anne desk used wood from a tree I felled on family farm. A walnut shaker desk from Woodsmith mag design. I built a dozen hallway mirrors one Christmas for friends and family presents.

Thank you. I actually cut that tree down, hauled the logs to a guy with a woodmizer mill and then air dried the lumber. It was my first attempt at cabriole legs. Not as hard as it looks, actually.
