whoever threw this away is weird

But if you happen to be reading this, and it's you who tossed this cute little thing to the curb, then I take it back. You're not weird. I just don't think I understand you. But hey, maybe I'm happy you're weird. Cause I like this thing, a lot.

















It inspired me:






















































Boom! Hello, little table. Thank you very much weird person.

{and fyi, this table is for sale in my new, still in progress, SHOP section to the right!}

  7. Thank you all! Okay in answer to questions:

    1. I am selling this little table and other things on the new section called SHOP -- click on the turquoise triangle! It's a bit unofficial at the moment but it will be paypal friendly soon!

    2. The camera I am using is a Canon 60D. It's awesome. I love it. I'm just using the lens it comes with in-store.

  8. Love your tables, they're beautiful!

    How do you find the wood? I read you sometimes find it on the street, but... always? Or do you also buy?
    Do you always cut them in same size similar pieces? With a handsaw or a jigsaw?

    Haha, so many questions, I'm sorry! Just really loving it :)

    Thanks! From Amsterdam

  9. To Anna,
    I always find the wood -- pretty much always! Which means that sometimes I must go without something that I badly need, and must be patient.

    And I cut each piece with a chop saw (miter saw,) or sometimes I stack a couple pieces up and cut them in a pile.

    Questions are always good!! Especially all the way from Amsterdam!

  10. Thank you for your answers Ariele!

    Originally stumbled upon your blog on Sous Style (and after checking again I saw that you already explained your building method there, oops!). I thought the pictures on there were so cool! Young woman, in a dress, making furniture :)

    Went over to the D.I.Y. shop a few too many times over the last months (renovation of my apartment), and there aren't that many girls in those kind of stores.. Good to see there are other women that like to build things too!

    Proud to tell that I just enrolled myself in a furniture-construction course which will start in January.
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  13. Just found your site and am completely hooked. I've been hoarding lath and hardwood scraps for years (to my wife's dismay) but haven't been able to get beyond a picture frame or two. Your work is inspiring. I noticed in one of your pics that you were finishing the table, but yet it looks so clean and raw. What do you use that keeps it so raw and beautiful looking?
    I look forward to catching up with your wonderful cross-country adventure.
