This table I made a few years ago, it has an oak tree theme thought out the entire table. This was the most difficult piece of furniture that I’ve ever made, it took me 1800 hours to design and make. I enjoyed everything about this table, also the customer for this table was great to work with and was very rewarding when completed .

Dennis,

That whole table is gorgeous but I especially love the legs with the carvings. Everything about it is spectacular.

WOW, DZ... Makes me ashamed of some of the garbage I put up... fortunately I have no shame.

If your first cut is too short... Take the second cut from the longer end... LBD

Can I come over and sweep the floor of your shop? I will do it for free.  Would be the thrill of a lifetime to watch you work.

Hmm now that would be a dream event for Craftisian: “win a trip to go sweep the floor”

This is what I think of when seeing all those antique hand worked masterpieces. Dedication that would make a Saint cry!
