The picture to the left is of one of the first woodworking projects I ever did (a little over 10 years ago). I made the table for some friends when they moved into their new house. I was really excited about the table, and I was happy that they liked it. Over the years, the joinery has failed and the "beauty" of the plywood top has faded. But the table still has sentimental value to me given that it was one of my first "real" projects. I'm getting the table back this week. I'll recycle what I can of it and will be trading it out for a new one. The experience has given me the opportunity to reflect on the past decade of woodworking, and I am excited (again) that my friends will have a new table. Pictures are below.
