This slideshow illustrates my latest piece Relationship Study, a trestle table made entirely of Western maple (96″ x 45″ x 29″ high). This table is available for purchase.
Why is Relationship Study an Appropriate Name for this Table?
This video talks about the table and explains why I chose the name.
I documented the build live on Twitter (username @FlairWoodworks, category #flairww). I’ve archived the Tweets on my blog in Sessions which are listed below, as well as comments from readers as the table progresed.
“I love the way it is coming out, nice work.”
“Beautiful slabs and I like the layout you chose.”
