I've been dabbling in building tables of various size using hardwood slabs sourced from local trees. This is a matching set of a coffee table and a bench/sofa table made of black walnut, exclusively for Winsome Goods.

This is the main level of my house, which is a 1902 corner store building in Northeast Minneapolis. I built a custom murphy bed in the wall, and painted it with a 3-D cubic pattern.
