Built this for a friend who owns a fire investigations business. Live edge maple table and maple back, was a honor to do this. Added an unfinished pic so the lettering could be seen.

People need to remember what happened on 09/11. Seems they are forgetting and not educating their children. Job well don and a very nice tribute!

Wonderful tribute! Are the axe and firebox authentic or replicas? Thanks for sharing.

I flew to NYC 4 weeks after 9/11 just to walk around and look at the place and express solidarity if that is the word. I stayed until Columbus day which was a Monday – just walking from one end of Manattan to the other and talking to people for a couple of days.

First thing: Every fire station was like a shrine. There were lines of people on the sidewalks who walked through and looked at memorial photos and info about each fireman who had died. There were about 400 NYC firefighters that died that day. Those were the guys going up the stairs while everyone else was going down.

Second thing: I was standing in line to pay for my lunch one day and somebody rushed past me – cutting in line I thought at first, but no. A fireman in uniform was at the counter. I quickly learned that in those days a fireman could not pay for lunch or a cup of coffie – because somebody would rush up and say “Let me buy that for you, friend”.


-- I intended to be a woodworker, but turned into a tool and lumber collector.
