Just started playing with wood a few months ago, when I decided to try my hand at making some hardwood frames for my pictures. Next thing I know, I have a garage full of tools, and I’m up until all hours crashing away and raising dust. Here’s my first table. The top is black acacia. Thanks for looking!

Looks like a deer to me. Very fluid lines and motion in this table. The live edges and twisted up legs are terrific. This is definitely a piece of art.
