Perhaps the thing I like best about this website is seeing the creative ideas that people come up with. This is another very neat and very creative idea. Well done.

The Top is a cut of cypress gathered from the slab pile of a local sawmill. Legs are ash picked up at the scrap pile of a local handle mill and the rest (trim & bottom shelf are seasoned willow gathered from the banks of the Current River.

Many cabin owners here appreciate the willow being cleared out. Makes for a better view of the river. Makes good furniture too.

The finish was 1/3 linseed oil 1/3 turpentine and the rest satin poly. (2 coats)

Thanks Jim.

Rustic furniture styles & design’s are limited only by the imagination of the artist.

I enjoyed looking at your projects. You are a very accomplished wood worker. Myself, I’m logs & sticks & roots & tricks. It’s in my blood I think.
