Have been working on this for some time. My last project was a side table for me made out of scrounged up wood. My wife wanting something matching on her side of the couch. Needless to say this is what I came up with. I used white oak (a first for me) that my lumber guy got for a song from a big factory that was closing down. Didn’t charge much at all for it. The walnut came from a bigger piece that I bought at the same time. This sucker is heavy! It’s about 27 inches high, 30 inches wide and about 14 inches deep. I am really liking the live edge thing recently. I think this may be the start of something I might call my own style.
The last picture is my new son Espen, sitting with my beautiful wife. He is a preemie and has been in the hospital for the past two weeks; and he gets to come home tomorrow for the first time! They are surprised at the hospital how well that he is actually doing. He is a tough little viking and he is drinking every bit of milk we can throw at him. I don’t get to stay at the hospital with my wife due to hospital policy (the last night is nesting for the mom, I was able to stay there after he was born for three days), so I am home pacing around at home anxiously, (hence posting the project). I’ve never been a father before and I have to say that it is a wonderful experience. Thank you all for the touching words, thoughts, and prayers that you sent so kindly. It really meant a lot.
