Everything made is of Shaker inspired design. I have made many Shaker pieces over

I designed and built this small side table over the past winter, it's main body is Ash. A log that my wife and I literally stumbled over a few years back on the shore of Cape Breton Island in Nova Scotia, Canada. I had a freind with a bandsaw mill rip it down and left it to air dry for three years. The drawer fronts are made from Angelique, again another 'sea-faring' wood species...This was reclaimed from an old barge that sat in Marthas Vineyard for the better part of 100 years!
This table was completely made by hand using only hand tools.
The finish is Tried and True oil/varnish mix.
Reclaimed wood, no power tools used and a food grade all natural oil for finish...what could be any greener than that?
