T Luker, nice. Walnut is one of my favorites, and I am curious about Cypress, although I have never even seen any.
That's art! You went past what was necessary for an end table and created something really nice. The artistic style of both pieces is even clearly identifiable as modern because of the flat surfaces and clean lines. The same goes for Zombiegirl's chess board. It is also art because it goes well past what is necessary for just function.

I think of craftsmanship has having to do with function. Building a cabinet with mortise and tenon joints or dovetails is craftsmanship. Those joints will never be seen and add no aesthetic value to the piece but they ensure overall quality and are a sign that it is well crafted. Using different color woods, inlays, shapes, and carvings in order to achieve an overall appearance is art. At least that's my theory on it.

And Cypress isn't the easiest wood to work with. It's not very dense and wants to cum up tools. It was real popular in the past here because it resists insects and rotting which made it really important because of our heat and humidity. It's great for things exposed to the elements like outdoor furniture. It was also very plentiful here because of all the swamps.

It was and for beautiful ladies at that, and I didn't think about it until after I made my initial response. I was already in for a pound by that point.

Be easy on us because this is the closest most of us men can get to talking about art without ending up as examples in the men acting more feminine thread!

Just like most of us ladies are considered "one of the guys" here on this forum, I guess it's okay for the guys to be one of the "beautiful ladies" on occasion.

Assuming you meant mine, Thank You! Specifically, the lamp was meant to be Japanese style, my wife likes all things Japan, and my style is inspired by the shaker type stuff. Simple, but always with some subtle detail to catch your interest if you look at it enough. I am not sure i nailed the Japanese thing on the lamp, but the wife likes it. I had the shade custom made, and it just came today. Hard to see in the photos, but those two square pegs in the top are not glued in, they come out, for potential replacement of that black rod, which is a glass tube.
I also specialize (among other things), in picture framing, using only quality hardwood, no metal fasteners, and clear lacquer only, no stain.
