    I just finished making this table. This was as modern of a design as I could come up with that was also as rustic as I coiuld come up with. I really like a Modern Rustic style of design.

    Here's a few more Wood Rings I made. As you can see by the first picture, things don't always go as planned. The point is to not give up.

  13. Tool Chest

    This tool chest is based on Mike Pekovich's tool chest from Fine Woodworking #234. I modified the size a little bit based on my wood.
