Here’s another project that came about from cleaning out my shop (I blogged about the first at:` in case you want to check it out).

I had the chess board ready to go, then I remembered four legs that I made for another project that ended up being canceled. So I decided to make a table. Before I started it, I happened to find a box that looked like it would make a perfect drawer, so I added that to my project pile. Then I got a bit carried away with the drawer pull, but I think it’s fun.

Phew, cleaning my shop is taking longer than I planned!

Thanks for looking.

love the combination of straight top and not so straight legs… adds artistic interest
