Put Away that Sander

Reading James Krenov as a beginning woodworker I was impressed by his conviction that a wood surface that has been cleanly cut by a blade reflects light in a completely different way than one that has been sanded no matter how finely. Here are two tables that I completed recently. No sandpaper was harmed in the making of these tables. The wood is some highly figured Walnut.

This is a desk for my wife, Nancy. She wanted the simplest table possible and selected these hairpin legs to complement the top that I made.

My daughter in law, Melanie, has been working from home this past year and also needed a work table. She liked what I had made for Nancy, but she picked legs in brass in stead of powder coated steel. The bottom table is a little bigger than the one above.
