Its hard to believe its been over six years since I posted for the first time on LJ’s with this Griffin End Table.

Just recently I purchased a new camera a Canon E05 Rebel T5i and was practicing on the Griffin Table. And I think its an incredible camera and would highly recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade. Its a little pricey but well worth the investment.

This Camera brings out the natural true colors for this table, much better then my first time.

I hope I don’t offend anyone for re posting my most favorite piece of furniture I’ve made so far in my woodworking journey.

I think this is more of a camera review and could have placed this under blogs. Well Thank you LJ’s for looking.

Here is a Link to the first pictures

Well I’ve never seen it so it is new to me. I love it. Gorgeous. I love the wood choice and combination woodworking/carving. I too, have a Canon Rebel. It was a few years ago. I think it was the first digital SLR. Heavy camera. I got a zoom and macro lens. Love it. It takes the large SD cards. You did a great job with the pics.

Hard to believe, but it does look even more spectacular than it did the first time I saw it!

Wow, I remember this glorious table. It was one of the first things I favorited on lumberjocks. Incredible work, I can’t imagine how many steps it took and how much patience you have.

The camera and photos are great Dennis, but the model is better. This is my favourite of what I’ve seem of your work too. That may be subject to change, maybe for both of us , when you finish the set you are working on now however.

Thanks for the new photos.

Yup it still looks awesome, the camera does make a major difference in the subject matter so much more vibrant. I love the canon products some day I’ll replace my point and click with a canon.

This piece still fascinates me even after seeing it many times I love it

I could take pictures of that with my phone camera and it would make them look good.
Nice project, and nice pics too.
