This is my latest creation. The ‘Trunk Shrub’ table is made of Balck Walnut and the base is reversible. It is held to the top with magnets.

beautifully conceived and executed.

Hmmm, upside down tooth?

Efficient use of wood… wouldn’t appear that you could get much in the way of usable pieces from it.

As a “Gun Nut” , Black walnut happens to occupy the #1 favorite wood spot in my hardened heart. You showcase its natural beauty with a “Modern” albeit “Naturalist” interpretation. I prefer my Walnut inlet for steel but you make a strong argument for its ability to “Stand Alone”. If I ever get that loft in SOHO you sir will be commissioned to furnish the entire place! Simply beautiful stuff. By the way, do you have ANY fingerprints left after all of that compound angle sanding? Ha ha…

That’s a nice design, indeed. Do you sketch them out or just go for it? Your work is top notch.

I completed this table about a month ago. It took roughly a week to build and finish. There were no drawings and it was all concieved in the shop. Most of the original works I am posting were made in the same way. These were built in between paying jobs over the last two and a half years.

Very Nice. I prefer the look with the large part down and the legs up. Great idea to make it reversable.

Hmmm. I would have to flip it every week because I don’t know which I like the best. All of your work is wonderful and very creative. Keep posting.
