This is my fist project after nearly 15yrs of near no involvement in the art. For some unknown reason (unconscious coma I guess) I allowed the Corporate world to consume my every waking moment. I truly feels so refreshing to be setting up a new shop and getting back into the art. I guess I never realized how much I missed it.

Following I will post a few additional projects along with my work shop (Currently under construction)

As always your comments / suggestions and any constructive criticism is welcome.

It is my goal to awaken and improve on my furniture making Skis and interact with others to broaden all our skills. I thank you all in advance for the warm welcome and hope to build some long lasting friendships hear.

My current goals are to (1st Finnish my work shop) polish my Green & Green techniques and entry door skils. . . .

Thank you Charles

Welcome back from Hard Time in the Cubes ;-)

No. You haven’t lost a step. Beautiful table. Love Shaker style. Very nice example, there.

Nice looking table : ) Your time away hasn’t hurt your skills any.
May I ask where your “Shaker” designs come from ?
I see that you use the word in most of your projects , yet they don’t resemble true Shaker style items at all.
They lean more towards Mission style in your basic design , and even too elaborate for that in the end. JMHO.
Keep up the good work !

Thanks Dave, Neil, Jim and Dusty . You all have very kind words :)
I look forward to finishing up the shop then equipping it.

Dusty, my bad I just have shaker on my brain as I have been laying out a coffee and some end tables for a build, looking at shaker stuff now for days, I think I see shaker when I look at my car. Dusty most of my furniture come from looking at different stiles I have never purchased a plan from anywhere, Typically i just sketch it up and start making saw dust.

Thanks for the heads up guys, I would have hated to leave it out there like that.

That is a very nice table. Well done. What was your technique for the dark wood inlay on the legs and stretchers?

Have your say...
