 This project of Mark Behring's is no two-bit job but a nicely crafted board to accommodate the complete collection of quarters commemorating the states of the USA. 

*************************************************************************

Mark Sweigart now has a place to stand at night which is why Mark calls his work a night stand.  The night stand is of cherry and, guess what, there is a secret drawer ...oops not secret anymore.

The question: are these garden tools for displaying on the wall or for digging in a garden?  Tough decision but well done handles of Asian satinwood by Lance Miles.

Do you know what time this photo was taken?  Probably not since it is hard to check the time when you're admiring the excellent carving work of Ted Clements.  The wood is cherry that has been "fumed" in ammonia.

Ehhhh...what's up, Doc?... oh wait...that's not Disney that's...uh Looney Tunes. These works by Charles Volek certainly aren't "Mickey Mouse" but are great pieces of intarsia.     L1020752.JPG (145750 bytes) L1020827.JPG (66629 bytes)
