Why? Because you can't make a tacky looking tilt-top table??
Just send your tools to me. I will cover the shipping costs.

Gee, Amazon has free shipping. Stoutman isn't being very competitive!

Jason Quick says...

But once everybody sees those pictures, there will be a glut on the used tool market and there won't be any woodworkers left to buy them.

Personally, I sometimes look at the stuff Tom Plamann makes (http://www.plamann.com/sys-tmpl/door /), and think about giving up my tools. But then I remember that I do this for fun, and as a hobby, and even if I never bring a stick of furniture into the house, it's better than going out to the bars and casino's... Of course, I've never told SWMBO that last bit...

Yeah, why else would they flip up besides to throw darts at them? I was thinking the same thing. I wonder what kind of finish is self-healing for use on a dart board.

You're a piker. Did one with my scout pocket knife and glued it up with self-rendered pitch extract.

I'm not gonna.
This guy caters to the carriage trade. Personally, I don't like all that marquetry. Less is more - do something for an accent, not a splashy display like these. They remind me a lot of medieval french furnishings that may be found in the king's castle. Not to my taste. And if I may judge from the sticker prices on his site, not to very many other people's taste either.

Yabbut.... at those prices, you don't need to sell more than a handful of pieces a year to make a pretty decent living...

OTOH, did you observe the amount of time that went into these pieces, on spec? Apparently, he has other means of support. If he makes a set every couple years, he isn't getting rich by woodworking.

If he sells one set every two years that is $60,000 a year. In my book that is a *very* good living - and for doing something he loves. The material cost on the two tables probably isn't more than a couple of thousand, all the cost is in the labor. If I thought I could gross $60K annually doing woodworking I'd be all over it.

The furniture is not exactly to my taste either but you've got to respect the craftmanship. If you can build that, there's not much you can't build.
