I've carved another Irish George II tea table but this time I used my own home grown cherry wood.
I speak frequently about the little cherry tree that my neighbor cut down, the one I ate cherries from.
I took the trunk home because I loved the little tree, but I did not know at that time what was inside just waiting to live on. Perfect "in scale" grain and knots and a beautiful coloring.
This photo shows a nice little knot.
It is so fun to cut off a piece of log, mill it down, thickness it and create a miniature piece of furniture!
