My wife asked me to make Donald, the cat, an end table the same height as the window sill so he could sit on the table and look out the window, which he likes to do. So I set about designing and creating The Cat’s End Table in a southwestern desert theme. This is the result. Now the other cats, Minnie and Daisy are liking it too. Made out of cherry, walnut, tiger maple, spalted maple, zebra wood and sapele. All solid wood, no veneers.

Spoiled Pussy Cat.
I can see why he loves it, and also why the other two like it as well.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.
