...and four and five!

Yep, we pumped out two tables today. And we weren't skimpy on the intricate patterns either! We went all out.




































































































Some plans for the future...






































































































































And here is table number four! Just before we finished it.


































The funny thing about today is that neither of the table patterns worked out how we had originally drawn them. One way or another, we managed to design a pattern that only worked in our heads and on paper, but not in actuality. Good thing we are super flexible gals, because we turned some things around, flipped over some patterns to fit, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thank goodness for the occasional mistake! Our designs came out better and more intricate because of them.

Table number five! Almost complete.


































What a productive day it was! We have our aching, aching backs, sore muscles, weary eyes, and beautiful table tops to show for it. I'm satisfied.

  3. Your Navajo-inspired designs look a lot like patterns on Anatolian tribal kilims like these, http://www.kilim.com/shopping/productlist.asp?lblForm_no=9998&cboStyle=Tribal&cboAge=-1 (if you need any more inspiration).

  4. Those are fantastic patterns! I will definitely base a table around some of those tomorrow. Good tip Ken! Thanks.

  5. I LOVE it! I have A bunch of random, salvage wood and I'm working on building an outdoor dining room table. Most of the wood I have is too small to make a standard table so I've been looking for alternative designs and this is exactly what I have been looking for! You're an inspiration.
