Permanent pieces in a disposable society.

Table I made at school. Legs are walnut. Rails and top are pine over which I applied two layers of milk paint (brown under green), giving it its antique crackled look. Milk paint is a non-toxic water based mixture. Early settlers brought this method of paint making to North America more then 250 years ago. I hand carved the leaf handle which, when drawer is closed, mates up perfectly with one of the twigs.
