These are some really simple log tables that we made and have been a huge hit with customers. My wife is the artist of the family and does the amazing paintings on some of our stuff. We framed out the table top with some old barn wood, and the customer wanted log legs incorporated into it. The table tops are scrap plywood. These tables are 36” long, 16” wide and 16” tall.

Dang if those aren’t the prettiest things I’ve seen on here lately.
I wish I could paint half that good.
Your woodworking skills are complimented by your wife’s excellent painting talent my friend.
I can see those selling as fast as you can make them.
Very nice work buddy.

This is something you don’t see everyday. A great idea and a job well done. Tell your wife I couldn’t paint near that good even if it were by number. I can see these being really popular.

These are truly superb!
With artwork like that, you should sell plenty!
Got to give credit to the better half though! I bet that painting took longer than the build!

Your wife is very talented, as are you. Beautiful yet simple, great job by both of you. Are the legs locust?

It’s going to be very hard to hang those paintings with those long stand offs on the back! chuckle

Those are just beautiful and would be perfect for a rustic cabin or a “man cave”.

What a great team…great building and beautiful painting. It works the same way in our house. I showed your tables to my wife and she liked them as well….reminding me we used to make allot of Country furniture where she painted…she said to tell your wife instead of painting on wood, she should paint on canvas. My wife changed over years ago and they do sell well for her.
