Will has a new pastime – making furniture out of wood.
I know, crazy concept, right? Why would you make furniture out of wood when you can make it out of particle board and melamine? But he does. And he’s pretty good at it, too.
Our new coffee table. The top is a slab of walnut and the legs are made from maple. There is not a screw or nail to be had. Mortise and tenons all the way.
(I like to run my feet along the rippled, smooth edge of it when I’m sitting on the couch, watching tv. It’s rebellious and comforting, all at the same time.)
