On March 10th, 2017 the Phoenix School provided a really fun evening. They hosted a fundraising event at the Solarium, to raise funds for their school. I made this coffee table as a donation item to help their efforts while supporting my company CitruSolution of Decatur https://citruscarpetcleaningdecatur.com. I enjoyed every minute making the table and for the 1st time had a very close friend who helped me during the process. Mary Paguaga is very close to me, my wife Anna, and anyone she crosses paths with. It was a lot of fun to build and share the energy that I go through during the creative and construction process with her. She was with me every step of the way and made me faster, more organized, and kept me moving forward. I started the project on a Thursday and finished it on the following Thursday. Once I was done I decided that it was worthy to have a professional photographer take some respectable shots. I think Lee Vann Photography did a wonderful job. Thanks LEE!! Again, this project just flowed for me. I started with a very informal drawing and just went into the shop and created… Wow… how exhilirating and fun to just passionately create!!!!

I hope Angela Thompson Paul enjoys her new table for a lifetime! It is my desire that the good energy I created it with is encapsulated in the wood and continues to be a little ray of sunshine for anyone who crosses paths with it.
