MADE BY MY FATHER

It took some time for him to collect all those corks, but it was defiantly worth it. The top is quarter sawn white oak. The grain matches around the base. I really love this table.

Now I’m really wondering about that aholic ending on your name.

That’s a beautiful table. I’m surprised your dad was able to complete it after all that drinking! LOL

Did he finish it after rehab?

Really creative and beautifully done.

Hi Jeff,

This is a really fine piece of furniture and the cork inlay is definately a unique touch to the piece as well. The table looks solid and well built. I can honestly say that I would not want to move this as it looks to be heavy. The edge treatment on the top and the corbels add nice details to the table.

Thanks for posting.

Your father has made a wonderful table. It has its own identity. Sharad
