  1. Dude! Incredible work. That table is amazIng! Thank you for sharing these images, my friend. Hope you are well.

    1. Thanks Mikey. The table was a collaboration with Cody. I think it is a pretty special piece of furniture, if I do say so.

    1. Thanks, Jana. I’ll share the finished print soon. And thank you for welcoming the puppets, it helps.

  2. Wonderful table Jack! The oak and walnut look great together. Your work (in all its forms) is always inspiring.

    1. Thank you so much, Gil. I always love hearing from you here. I need to send you an email, and see how you are doing.

  3. I always looked in on your work, but only recently subscribed.. The table is outstanding!!! I dabble a little making stools the odd chair and many other things along the way.. Please take a look at my blog, Talk From The Timber.. If you get the chance…

    1. Thank you for your comment, Brian. I am glad, indeed, that you like the table. I enjoyed looking at your work. Thank you for sharing with us.


  4. That is a very impressive table Jack. History shines in the creation. The printmaking is simply astonishing. Such (more) great craftsmanship. Love the interview (Pt. 1 which I finally read) and now Pt. 2. Fantastic to learn so much about the process and thoughts behind the various ideas and iconography. Thank you!

    1. Thank you Clive, I sometimes have my son take a few pictures, though he thinks it is fun to hold the camera upside down. This one I actually set a timer to get the shot -sometimes it seems necessary to complete the documentary cycle- even though it feels kind of bizarre taking pictures of myself.
