    I don't really like the chair, only the sofa. I suppose the bed is ok, but now what I'd get. IMO, weak 2014 offerings from Cappellini.

    I like the whole peg collection. The mirror and column are great. So is the bed.

    All that fallows was done entirely by hand, including dimensioning the lumber from rough stock.

    Yup, I've finally come home. After recent projects in mahogany, rock maple, white oak and ash it's nice to once again be working in walnut.

    . Lol, thank you!

    might get the column, I have a good space for it.

    the bed, IMO, works well with a giant bedroom, which i don't have.

    Wow, I can almost smell it. Nice workbench you have Goomba, very, very nice. We had wooden workbenches like that in my school for woodworking classess (I did not appreciate them then):)
    Is that are part of something you are making or a finished table (hard to tell from pics)?

    Thanks MW!

    I'll post up some pics of the finished piece once I can get some decent lighting in the room. It's a sculpture stand, which in am using for Bonsai in the winter and probably some random sculpture in the summer.
