I couldn't resist *PIC*

Mr. Tindall's petrified wood table intrigued me to wonder how I'd incorporate a piece in a table. It jelled into an image of the specimen being the focus of a suiseki rendition as the table top, and the outline of the stone the theme of the table shape.

What evolved was a simple design in dark stained walnut highlighted with gold toned pearl, with rudimentary joinery held together with a bit of Titebond augmented by hand cut nails.

In a case of building the bicycle while riding it, a fourth leg support had to be added to resist tipping, but it was an opportunity to incorporate a beautiful knot from scrap.
