I called this particular table “Streams of Life” because quite often we are swept along in the current of life by events that we sometimes have no control over and no two people follow an identical flow. A pebble could be thrown in to try and help, but only ripples are made making mostly minute changes in the grand scheme of things.

This is stylized by the top which is made of 3 separate curly maple boards which I had problems matching the figure and was standing there looking at it and realized how much the figure looed like ripples.

70” long x 14” wide x 28” high.

Finished with BLO, dewaxed shellac and water based poly for the top. You can read the full writeup on my blog below if desired, but it doesn’t focus on the build process which was mostly by hand, but with some help from my planer.
