This table was built out of Poplar and Cedar…I was goofing off with the Lathe and some junk wood I had laying around…Looks what happens when people get bored….lol

If this is what you do when you are bored then show us some work that has captured your attention. Nice job.

Very cool table. I’ll second the request for something that gets you focused, cause bored looked rather spiffy.

Wish my “bored” jobs turned out this nice. Let’s see what you can do when you really put your mind to it.

You should get bored more often, that looks great!

Thank you all for your positive comments, I have never shown my work until last year. Most of it I made for a Smile. I gave it all away to friends, family or whoever I could get to take it….lol

A great table. Is it full size or a mini.

You may be bored – but your work sure isn’t. You are a very talented craftsman – if you aren’t selling these pieces – you should consider it.

I have tried in the past to sell my pieces but as we all know the outlets for our workings are very limited.
