These were a pair of custom commissioned display table that are one-of-a-kind. I really enjoy the design process and working with these clients gave me the opportunity to be a “problem solver” of sorts. She wanted bookshelves to display their collection of special books, while He wanted a way to display some of their western artifacts as artwork. These tables were the result. We have been invited to dinner at their home at the end of the month and we will take some more pictures of them in the clients home.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the nice comments.

Tim: Hey how are you? Hope, you are well! ...and yes, I did all the carving on these tables (two of them!) Almost killed me!

Barb: I’ll post some final pictures in a couple of weeks.
