This is the latest project I have been working on. It's a cherry dining room table made from a black cherry tree that I cut from the customer's land. I sawed the logs, dried the wood and built the table. It's too bad I can't take pictures worth a dang, cuz this looks a lot nicer in person. ;) ;) It's all cherry except for the walnut plugs in the top...It's a 25th anniversary present for his wife......This is the Burlkraft version of a Shaker table.....

That is a very beautiful table. One of these days I'll get somewhere that I can harvest my own wood. Don't think the neighbors would be too happy if I cut the saplings out of their yard here in suburbia. :no:

Great looking table. What a great process taking things from roots to finished product. I used to live in the Carolinas where hardwood was plentiful. Now I am in Colorado where we have nothing but Aspen and pine........
