Walnut table. First big project to attempt, completed in September 2008. Walnut was milled by my Uncle in West Virginia, tree from my Dad’s homeplace. The wood was air dried and not always milled straight which added a little degree of difficulty to the project.

That’s a fantastic looking table! Great work – really caught my eye. Love the look of the curvature on the legs. Nice touch that the wood was home-grown. Well done.

i love the design. It is elegant yet looks like it could hold an elephant! Very, very nice work. I also love that the wood has a story…I should say a “known” story.

Great job man. Looks very solid yet elegant, I really like it! I don’t recall seeing one like it before, is it your design? Either way you did a fabulous job. You have a great eye for line and proportion
