Hello LB friends it’s been a while since I was posting last, have had some serious foot problems for the last 5 months and it’s really slowed us down. I have managed to get back to work part time in the shop and put out a few projects. I know we have made countless coffee tables, but the grain in this one is really out of this world and had to share. The legs suck!! Sorry the wire legs don’t do it for me, but it’s what the customer wants and the customer makes pay day possible. Thanks to you all and all of your support and please enjoy the projects to come.

Hey Todd, you are so correct about the grain in this table top.
It’s absolutely stunning.
So glad you are able to spend some time in the shop at last.

Love it. I am not a fan of hairpin legs either, but it’s all about the customer.
