Excellent book shelf. It looks like you might need to build another matching table to add soon.

thanks woodspanker, after i was laid off last dec. and nobody was hiring [400+ resumes in 2 months, 1 responce] i took everyones advise and oped up my own bussiness, now i’ve hired 3 part time workers, and 2 of us working full time, looking to hire another one full time. a customer from norway has ordered 12 of my 4’x6’ slate inlaid coffee table to be shipped to norway. i’ve out grown my new shop, running out of space. and i haven’t even advertized yet, except from my web site. this was suppose to be a hobby, started out that way. can’t complain happy at what i’m doing. hope i’ve done the right thing, gotta bring home grocery somehow.
