The end of May SpitFire and I spent nine days exploring Florida....and finally stumbled on a centerpiece....after four years of looking....

Four years ago the boys and I spent a couple of months turning a pile of rough cut oak boards into our new dining table. Since then we have been looking and trying different things for a centerpiece. Last week in a Key West T-shirt/shell shop we found these blown glass bowls melted onto cypress stumps. I fell in love with it immediately (and spent a lot more than I should have to get it).
wife

Once we got it home we filled it with "treasures" we picked up on the trip. I'm sorting pics to post on the trip. hammer

The table.....







The centerpiece.....

Thanks everyone!

We spent months looking for a simple plank oak table to seat 10-12 and came up snake-eyes! Everything was too thin, too small, too gaudy, too bulky, or just outright hideous......so the boys and I spent a couple months making this one to fit our space.

Here is the thread from four years ago about building the table.....

cheers

A refined eye and talent are not necessarily gender specific.....so, Iíll just take that as a compliment....

I like to think I have the mind of an engineer with the eye of a designer....... woot

You can see how well the combination works on the fireplace I built too......cheers
