Here is an end table we saw at our local Amish wood shop. I was there picking up my roosters after they had processed them for me. I was given a tour of their wood shop and saw this piece. He had made a few others but this one stood out. It is black walnut and quite heavy.
We asked if he could add a second shelf in the middle. We picked it up a week later and brought it home.
We are going to replace the hardware with more modern handles. But we are happy with the unique colors of the wood. It fits in with our homey farm. We appreciate that the wood was grown here and the furniture was made here. We like buying local.
