Very impressive! Your dog, however, is NOT impressed by your talent. ;-)

Randy, you’re correct about the dog. However for two Milk Bones she would have smiled and put one paw on the top of the table in a dramatic pose. My daughter found this pup at 6 months of age tied to a dumpster at the University of Pennsylvania along with a bag of food and a note asking someone to provide her with a good home. A second pup was found in the dumpster with it’s throat cut. She and a friend took it to Penn’s Vet School and saved it. She is a Staffordshire mix and at 11 years of age is the most gentle dog we’ve ever had. It all depends on how you treat them

Very nice! That is a very beautiful and elegant looking table. Lovely inlay work and nice figure on the drawer front veneer.

Great job. What kind of veneer did you use for the drawer front?
