That’s a very unusual looking table and you have done a nice job on it. Good work.

Certainly unique. Reminds me of something you might see in a movie like “Alice in Wonderland”, and I mean that in a good way… it’s whimsical and well constructed, and very imaginative!

Are you really sure you do not want to adopt another brother. You have a great imagination and the
ability to back it up with great craftmanship, I like the short and simple tutorial of how to do a great
table, now if I really push my apprenticeship, I should be able to duplicate this in a few years. Thank you
for sharing and adding one more, must learn to do projects to our list.

Interesting and stylish table. An eye grabber to say the least. Excellent craftmanship to acheive the various patterns.
