we recently finished this mahogany coffee table ... it is another version of a design by a local architect, ramsay gourd. it’s a cool design and we’ve made 3 or 4 versions of it. also, this weekend is open studio in vermont. it’s the 20th anniversary of the event and over 250 artists accross vermont will be opening their studios to the public. it takes place statewide, saturday and sunday, 10-5. look for the yellow signs. it’s a good opportunity to see how some amazing craft artists work … if you’re in vermont, i encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity. also, i have a new blog format compliments of google where you can see photo links to every post i’ve ever written. the technology is amazing, and free !!! check it out if you have a minute … have a great memorial day weekend … dan

You do beautiful work, l check your website its really done well. Your pool tables are awesome . Several years ago l picked up a Bruinswick table 4 1/2×9 it was covered in macteck l stripped it all down and found out it was from 1920 to 1925 era . lt turned out pretty good l should post it. Lumberjocks has been really good for me , it gives me a chance to see projects done by professionals like your self and helps me to try new projects . Thanks For Sharing!!!

Love the coffee table even though I would call it a Tea Table :) Checked out your blog and I do agree that is one cool way to look at a blog and I found a few things I really liked.

Thanks for sharing and I’m going to keep an eye on your blog if for nothing else for inspiration for some things I want to do myself.

Beautiful work as always. It’s amazing to see a piece of mahogany as wide as that table top.

Beautiful, I love this table! It is really classy. I wish that I lived closer, because I would love to met an artist that would make such a gorgeous table. I am sure that you will wow them, good luck this weekend…..

Really like the design of the legs and the curved stretchers. Looks like the bottom of the Effiel Tower.

Another great piece of work Dan. I wish I could make it to the open studio sounds like a good time.
