a couple more months have passed again since i last posted here. we have been busy on a client’s home renovation project with lots of built ins, most still unfinished, and we’re building a new metal shop for our son sam, in the parking lot. the other son will, has gone off making custom banjos full time. the carved detail above is from one of his latest, but you can see others, and place your order on his new website here. the coffee table in the first photo is a reinterpretation of our original 'bridges; design, which was, in fact, a bench. the barnboard vanity was also finished recently and i learned that just cause it’s ‘rough’, it ain’t easy. in fact, it can be harder than using all nice flat, planed lumber … i hope you are all busy and happy … dan

That table design really shows off the wood selection. And Will’s banjo carving is simply gorgeous. What a talented family!

Beautiful table Dan. I love the wood and the finish. Both are exceptionally nice. The steel base looks great too. Your son makes some beautiful banjos, I checked out his website.

Dan, I’m going against the grain and stating that I don’t like the table. Why you ask? Because it makes the square boxes (ie cabinets, bars, etc…) I build look like crap! :-) In all seriousness, that’s an outstanding looking table. Love the wood and metal contrast and the grain in the top….. well it speaks for itself. I consider myself an amateur woodworker; you sir are an artist. Keep up the great work and keep posting! Cheers
