White oak entry table. Top is trimmed with a walnut band since I managed to cut through one of the biscuits when trimming the end. Store bought carving highlights on the front. The table was originally going to have three drawers but just when I got to the drawer part of the project, the Missus vetoed the drawers saying they would just collect junk. Hence the frame and false fronts. Turned out okay anyway.

I’m a huge fan of oak and when it’s shaped like that I’m an even bigger fan. Oh, btw – beautiful table

Don’t take offense when I tell you that the store-bought highlights greatly detract from the table. It looks fantastic on its own, and I could immediately tell that those were just stuck on. Pull them off, clean it up, and then it would be perfect.

I’m not a fan of the store bought highlights either. The Missus likes them though and thinks they give it some “pop”. We all know that when the missus is happy, we are happy. I just smile and say “Yes Dear!”

And that, good sir, is why you are married and I am single.

Actually, I’m single as well. I live with my girlfriend who supports me, feeds me, provides me my shop and tools and allows me to pretty much live a life of leisure. Of course living a life of constant pain, limited mobility and chronic fatigue due to the morphine pump embedded in my stomach and the oxycodone I have to take three or four or more times a day may not really qualify as a life of leisure. I do thank my lucky stars every day for the love of this woman and her willingness to support me though and therefore will do whatever I can to make her happy and return her love and kindness any way I can. Without her I would be living under a bridge in a cardboard box, or worse. So you see, I am very happy to throw some store bought highlights on one of my creations if it makes her happy. Little to ask for all she gives me in return me thinks.
