  1. That is one pretty table! I can’t wait to see the next piece you make along these lines. <<>>

      • Thanks a lot, Gil, and Mikey. Good to hear from you, Gil. Hope that new shop is working out good.

  2. Hi, I like this..”…………a lot! Are the bottom of the legs burnt? Is this more for aesthetics, or something more symbolic? In any case, very interesting.

    • I am glad you like the piece. The finish is built from layers of glazing starting with a black stain at the base of the legs, and a heavy gel stain on top of that, which does give it a dense burnt appearance. I had to expedite the finishing process to meet my deadline, but given the short time frame I am not disappointed in the results.
