This video is absolutely amazing. Using reclaimed lumber and hand tools, a man builds a unique table for his wife. Very inspiring video. Just WOW!

Thank you Erika for sharing this with me on Facebook. I love it!

I want to know what brand of coffee he drinks and where I can get some.

Very nice! That man is fast with a hammer; I’d not want to meet him in a gunfight.

Cricket,

This may not be the place for it but since your the go to, and your new post on what we would like to see.

Your initial post is not ipad friendly. I assume there was a video involved but I cannot see it on my ipad that was updated yesterday.

I can post it there if you don’t want to cross reference.

That’s very ambitious, I’d like to incorporate more hand tools, but making the transition will no doubt require more patience than I currently have (not to mention a lot more time!).
