While out hunting I came across some log trimmings I initially was going to use for firewood. George Nakashima’s work has inspired me a lot of late and very happy with my latest end table. The top is plantation pine and the base is Blue Atlas Cedar

Andy what a cool table and great use of some very interesting wood. What kind of finish are you going to use? I love bow ties, I did some on my outdoor table and can’t wait to do them agian. Nice job on this!

That is a cool table. If we all got creative as you, we would have no more fire wood!
I like the bowtie in lays to contain the crack, How deep to you cut them and do you have any shot of how you did it? Were they routered in??

Very nice chicken foot end table. I like your creativity. I hope you are not offended by my suggestion that it looks like a chicken foot.

I’ve been occupied with my occupation and dealing with legal matters. Have an opportunity to go through my LJ email and got this wonderful suprise. You’re thinking outside the fire box! LOL! Integrates old and new with respect! And talent.

That is a very nice table and the base looks like an Emu foot to me. Love the bowties.

Good looking design. And I love the legs.
