Cool Another coffee table

My Dad is a hobby woodworker, now that he is retired (pipefitter) he spends more time in the shop. He brought some guy over awhile back who was needing some wood for a project. While Dad was here he dragged a 24" wide curly maple slab and a couple walnut boards home with him . This is kinda like my thread "I needed a coffee table so I made one", he needed a coffee table too. His is much prettier than mine, he brought it by this morning for me to have a look at. I like it alot. I did not get a good shot of the figure in the top, but it is killer.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I see where your talent comes from. That's a real nice piece. I would like to see more pictures especially underneath.

I never thought of it, I could not stop staring at the top . The legs and stretchers are well done though, simple-clean 1/2 laps and mortise/tenon.

"The apple doesn't fall far from the tree" unfortunately I rolled downhill awhile before coming to a stop . He has been playing with wood for a long time. I did not find much interest in it until my 30's, he has a 30 year jump on me. I can catch up though, most of his early years were spent keeping a roof over my head and food in my belly doing something that paid a little better than this stuff .

Daren you are too modest. Your work is nothing to sneer at.

Tell your pappy he made a splash on the world wide web. Tell him you got some wannabe's who want to dupe his piece and you need some underneath pics.
