Made for Computer Use, Breakfast, Writing, Reading, etc. in Bed…
I’m no artist, but an attempt was made this time to make something with a light and whimsical feel to it… a “happy” table, if you will…
I’d like to think I was at least partially successful…
At least the last picture shows that it was well received!!! Although it was hard to get Debbie’s attention… She was already too busy on-line… :)
The construction was blogged, beginning here:
Thanks for your interest, my Friends… Any Questions, Comments, and/or Criticism are Welcome!!

Hi Mike,
So cool, it was a pleasure to read your way to the result, and now a pleasure to see the smile on Debbies face.
I love the color, it’s one of my favorites – if it’s tis red orange Japanese color as I see on my screen.
Big heart . big smile.

Really great table, Mike!

From the smile on Debbie’s face, I’d say it is perfect!
