In keeping with the making things from maple theme, here is a coffee table I just finished.

It is all from one piece of spalted maple except for the 2 tapered legs, which are cherry.

I bought the whole log 20 plus years ago, it was already slabbed. It is only the second thing I have made for us out of it, most was converted to groceries. At the time I could barely afford it, but it turned out ok.

You would be a cool neighbor. Instead I have looneytunes on one side and old people on the other. At least the old people are quiet.

That is lovely.

Maybe you, T0G and I should form an old guy commune and pool our power tools!

In my workshop news, a friend lost her husband last year (long term cancer), and out of the blue decided that since I work with Habitat (and my lovely wife is active in the community) that I should inherit her late husband's tools.Let's just say they are tools that I could not afford to buy on my own--and there are a lot of them!

So this was like having the fire lit under me to actually spend some time setting up my workshop. And I have been divesting the tools that I no longer need, some went to our local Habitat, and trying to figure out what I can actually fit into my tiny one car garage/workshop. I'll post some pics when I get more organized but I actually may be able to spark took envy!
