Dining Table

Ed finished building our dining table!

Here it is in our dining area.  I’ve been waiting two years for a table here.  The flowers are from my garden, the last of the Endless Summer hydrangeas.

The table is cherry and built in Ed’s signature style, a combination of early American and Shaker.  The cherry was leftover from a stair that Ed built, and the wood is from Connecticut.  This table matches our coffee table and TV cabinet, and he plans to build end tables to match, too.  The only problem is that now we need to get chairs, so we’re not quite using the new table yet.

    Hi Ed, those of us who witnessed you travel from early youth into “manhood” are proud of your accomplishments and you…and are available anytime for Abbie meals around that artistic artisan creation you call a table. (Proof positive of gene pool and environmental influence).
    Btw, I have that table’s Granddad. It runs in the family and has cracks. Terry

  13. Abbie, that table is gorgeous!!
