This dining room table follows the American folk tradition and is called a Sawbuck Table. The legs and rail are walnut while the braces are maple. The table top is re-purposed wood; the maple was once a gym bench in a high school locker room and the mixed hardwood, some Brazilian, was once the flooring of a semi-truck. The inlays are maple and walnut edged in colored ink. The rail pins are stained with the same color of ink.
The serving board which slides under the table top, is made of the same wood. The colored glass inlay has an orderly pattern that appears to tumble and the inlay changes to wood.

Hard Candy

Trash trolling is an admirable hobby. When college student depart the city where I live, the things that can be rescued from the trash boggle the mind. I know veteran dumpster divers, and I don’t deserve the title. However, this collection of glass candies sparkled from a pile near the curb, catching my eye as I stepped from my parked car. They’re mine now, along with the pressed glass bowl they were sitting in. They’re pretty.
