I like to calibrate birthdays by making something my wife likes. I will be 92 and she 90 in a few days. 66 years ago when we were first married I made her a small box with a hand saw and she was so proud of me I resolved to continue and do better. It was a terrible looking box. You can see I have improved. The trim and legs on this end table is Black Cherry from NY. The inside trim is Espave from Central America. The dark wood is from a Red Mahogany log I floated out of the Darien Jungle of Panama in 1975. The white wood if hard Maple from Vt.
the pieces are made up 3/8 thick and then sanded, glued and pressed to 3/4 aspen plywood If there any questions I would be glad to try and answer them. Thanks for looking

No one can accuse you of posting too many pictures on this site, but when you do post it is always
something outstanding. Very precise cutting and assembly. It must be the woodworking and that
wonderful wife that keeps you going. Thank you for sharing and I hope to see many more projects.
