This table is another result of my experimenting with concrete & field stone. Its totally different from the last one and the first time in a while that I stuck to working with straight lines. This is one heavy end table weighing about 80 lbs. Thanks for looking.

i am working with stone and stainless steel and wood and i like what you have done here. you don’t see many people working with stone and wood anymore but it was very popular back in the victorian era.

Hi Paul,

I have to say, I liked the last one much better. The proportions on this one are keeping it from being a knock out.

In my humble opinion, that is. I hope you don’t mind my being honest.

I agree Lee, I think the legs may be a bit to tall or the top is the wrong size. I will always respect your opinion and I would much rather hear the truth or a real opinion then fluff. I’m actually great full when I hear some constructive criticism. I think most people won’t say anything in fear of offending. I will say that it does look a little bit better in person then in the picture. I believe learning design is so much harder then the actual fabrication in woodworking or any (for a lack of a better word) art form. I will keep pressing on, as in baseball you can’t always bat 1000. I’m just glad to get a chance to swing the bat.
