Another transfer gift for a Chief that I worked for. She is using it as a reading/end table. I drew at circle in the middle of the table top with a gold flake paint pen and took it to work to have everyone that worked for her and with her sign it with a silver flake paint pen. Then I sealed the top and put it all together.
The coin in the middle of the table front is our command coin. I asked the CO if he was willing to give up one of his coins for her. Of course the answer was “no”. So I gave her mine that was given to me during an award ceremony. I share this little story in the hope that I can teach folks not to be a jerk, just to be a jerk.
The wood in this table is red oak and spanish cedar. Unfortunately, red oak and pine is pretty much the only thing I can find in Meridian, MS. I had to hunt down the cedar. It took me two weeks to find a local woodworker that had some he was willing to let go of.
