My mother in-law asked me to make her a simple zebra wood table stand for a set of zebra wood chairs she purchased for her sunroom. I have a issue with “simple”... I can’t do simple. She is a very “pink” lady who collects glass flowers so I designed and built this table for her. Italian poplar veneers with a steam bent walnut core and book matched zebra wood veneer, with turned walnut burl stamen and anthers. A 42” scalloped edged glass top completes the flower look and the chairs around the table base looks like a giant flower.

Wow, I almost sneezed. I’d hate to see what you’d come up with if someone asked for something fancy.

You are not just a woodworker and exceptional craftsman, but an artist too. I think most of us aspire to this kind of work, but few of us ever come even close.
