I can do my adirondack chairs with my eyes closed! (almost!) But projects like this (with drawers-YIKES!) are a big challenge for me. This was built for a teacher’s grown daughter from the school where I spent 30 years as principal. Upon delivery she was thrilled. But it is my thrill to leave something with someone who is so happy!! I know you guys understand that!! It was made of black walnut with a cherry highlight stripe down the middle! 70 ” long!!

Very nice table, beautiful build. Glad the new owner liked it so much, going to be an heirloom for sure.

Just beautiful. Yes I do understand, The look in someones eyes when they receive something I made tells quite a story. That’s a big part of why I woodwork. Thanks for posting!
