Here is a table I just finished. I am calling it a slant leg couch table. It is made out of quarter sawn white oak. The top is 1-1/8” thick and has bread board ends. The little bead detail you see running around the sides is not an applied piece of molding it is actually a thick piece of wood edge glued to the to the sides of the boards that make up the aprons. I’m sorry the pictures are so bad I might have to actually buy a decent camera some day. (Its low priority right now though.)

Ok so I went with a friend of mine a week or so ago to visit with chair maker Curtis Buchanan.

Curtis is truly a master chair maker but I think the thing I admire most is that he has managed to make his living working at something he truly loves. I admire his lifestyle as much as his chairs, but anyway while we were in Tennessee I picked up a few pieces of walnut. This is a couple of spoons I have made so far from that wood.

by the way the spoon in the middle is from a piece of birch the same friend gave me.
