Our former lumberjack of a friend, showed up at our dock on a rainy afternoon with his chainsaw, a very basic drawing that he scribbled out an hour before, and a big idea. He thought that he had figured out (on paper at least) a way to make an end table out of a solid piece of wood. Being that we’re the only ones with a freshly fallen tree in our side yard and no idea what to do with it, our friend came to our place to test out his theory. When we asked him why he didn’t wait until a day with better weather, he said that he was so excited about this theory that he wanted to test it out right away. As long as we didn’t have to stand out in the pouring rain with him, we figured we’d let him do his thing.
Needless to say, his theory was correct. He made five tables that day. We kept a couple for the cottage and he took the others. After they spend the winter drying out, we’re going to all have some awesomely unique tables.
