More woodwork

I thought I'd show you some more of Steven's wood work - he is such a talented person, and an absolutely beautiful partner as well! (Not that I'm biased, of course!). Here is a picture of the entertainment unit he designed and created for us recently - it's made of Victorian Ash and the drawers extend out fully to try and contain our ever growing DVD collection...


He then had to make us a matching coffee table.....


As if that wasn't enough, a person (who shall remain nameless!) suggested we needed some new coasters....... the idea THAT person had was for him to just slice some burls he had and coat them with Danish oil, but Steven, being as meticulous as he is (see where Lana gets it from!!) had to make us these beautiful round ones with the burl slice set in....


I love watching him create such beautiful items, and enjoy using them all!

Those coasters are beautiful! He should sell them on ebay, or etsy or something.

The furniture is beautiful as well. My DH likes to make furniture too =0)
