Doug,

Marie put the video that NJIT made in a blog here is the link http://lumberjocks.com/GlenGGuarino/blog/14836
I am working on my video with a friend of mine on the NJIT show. Its in the editing stage now.

This is another blog of a radio interview I was invited to do with Chris Wakefield who has a show “Into the Night” on 1470KHND This was a first for me, I’ve never done a radio interview, it turned out to be a lot of fun to do. Chris is great & very easy to talk to.

Arabesque was designed for a friend of ours who has a business in Manhattan. It looked great in Noyes Museum show, people were able to walk around it & the lighting was perfect.

Sorry it does look a little fuzzy here. The table looked great on the poster advertising the Functional Forms show at NJIT.

Thank you all for your kind comments. You guys are special people who understand the pleasure and the challenge inherent in working with wood. The wood in Arabesque is really hansom but hard to work with because the grain is so refracted. The difficult part of this design was shaping 4 legs to the same shape. In fact, since the leg is symmetric I had to produce 8 carvings that look identical to each other. If you guys would like ,I think have some pictures of the table being made that I could post.

Keep making saw dust
