build my own furniture
Just finished my second end table

It was a great way to spend time with my dad. I traveled home for a week last year and we made an end table out of solid american walnut. The design for it was inspired by a very high-end furniture company (www.bddw.com) based out of NYC. It turned out well and we learned a lot.

This year, we stepped it up a notch. We used macassar ebony and mdf. I just finished putting it together and it looks amazing.

It was great to build something. It was great to spend time working with my dad. I get both great memories, a piece of art, a place to keep my stuff, and the pride of making it happen.

Thanks dad!
