Here is a heart shaped end table I built today 11-26-2010. I’m not sure what type of wood the top is but the base is made of Sassafras.

That table will go good with a cold one. Good looking piece.

Like this! From the pic it looks like you tenoned the log through the top? Did you?

That’s a very self contained table I’d say. It’s sort of a gift of nature. Take a little material from nature and add some human labor and imagination and you have a table. Good work.
