It is always a joy to get to take a project from a tree to a beautiful piece of craftsmenship. This customer had us cut up her hard maple tree with our sawmill. Now that the wood is seasoned she is having me build her some studio furniture from it.

They are made totally out of hard maple from her tree right down to the custom turned nobs on the drawers. I went all out! These sport bookmatched tops and dovetailed drawer boxes. I was so exited to make these before I milled to wood and after I saw that dark streeking I could barly contain myself. This is the kind of peice that makes you glad your a woodworker

beautiful pieces… the leg taper adds quite a styling to these, and the wood is incredible.

Great pair of bed stands. The leg shape changes them from ordinary to extraordinary.

Love the curved legs. And the maple you have there has beautiful patterns on it.

stunning grain on that maple, I’m sure pictures don’t do them justice. I love the proportions of the tables they look great!

Great looking.

How did you cut the drawer fronts from the front aprons? The gap looks almost line to line.

I’m always curious…how long did the wood season and how did you do it? Where did you store it?
