After 25 years in Corporate America I left my job this year and opened my own woodworking business. This is the first project done in my role as a professional, and is for my wife’s clinic. I used Cherry for the slightly tapered legs and the face frame on the table top, and birdseye maple veneer in the top itself. There is a small inlay in the apron.

The table is simply a place for her patients to place their change and keys when they have to get on the table for treatment.

Beautiful table. I second a1Jim, I like it a lot.

A great place for patients to place…....keys, change, glasses, hearing aids, phones, cameras, snacks, children (and their snacks of which Cherrios is the worst), car seats, stickers for the children, toys, purses, coats, sweaters, shopping bags, backpacks, books, hair combs, lists, photos, umbrellas, shoes, boots, iPods, hats, belts…............................................maybe you ought to cover it with glass….........

By the way, Windows Picture and Fax viewer, or almost any viewing program will flip those photos upright and save it that way. If you are not using windows, there are plenty of free programs out there.

Look forward to more of your projects.

Thanks, everyone for the kind words. Jim B., thanks for the tip on how to flip my photos. I’m not a computer guy (obviously!)
