This is the first piece off of my own furniture line called the L&M Collection. It’s named after my daughters middle initials. The metal frame has tabs that extend to hold the wood in place. It is hard to show in pictures, but there is a small gap all the way around between the wood and metal. It provides a visual effect to seem like the wood slabs and panel below appear to float. This also allows the panel to still expand and contract without any visible issues. The holes in the tabs below the wood are slotted to allow for this movement. The center has a “live edge” turned towards the middle with a hand cut glass pattern down the center. The area for the glass was routed out and then shaped with a kutzall disc to make the live edge appear more natural. Please let me know what you think. I am excited by how this turned out, but I know there is always room for improvement.

Thank you Monte. After watching your work the past few years, that’s a huge compliment for me.

Thanks guys! It’s a design my dad and I came up with years and years ago. My dads best friend was a welder and my best friend’s dad was a glass worker so we had wanted to work together on it. Well it never happened and when I started my business I knew I wanted to bring it to life. I showed a few people the design and got a remark that it looked like greg klassen’s work. I actually emailed him and spoke on the phone going over my design to make sure I wasn’t infringing on any of his design copyrights. He gave the blessing that he didn’t think it looked anything like his so I went ahead and sold the first one. I have side tables, console table, tv stand, buffet, and a dining table left to build. Hopefully I can get with a designer and sell a full set. I know the woodworking in itself wasn’t complicated, but has been by far the most fulfilling job.
