I don’t know that many of you have a subscription to Custom Woodworking Business it is a free trade publication. Well I was surprised to open the contents page and see a table I immediately recognized.

Dennis Zongkers is in print again. He won the Residential Furniture, Freestanding 2009 Design Portfolio Award for his Griffin end tables (we saw here first.)

They also included an article on their business featuring the Galactic table (also seen here first.)

Not to sound too much like a fanboy, but I was excited to see a fellow LJ in the spotlight. I particularly appreciate his talents and his projects. I know I will never have his patience, and thus skill, but it is inspiring to see what he has done. With over 2200 views I am obviously not the only one amazed with the Winged Lion Table. I just wanted to spread the news and congratulate Dennis and Dan.
