I have a good friend who gathers fallen trees, mills them and air dries them. He then makes furniture and other architectural things from them, a lot in the style of George Nakashima. He is currently sitting on 10,000 bd ft, half two years air dried and mostly walnut and cherry. I asked him to bring me some of his offcuts to help me get started in the shop. From what he gave me I made a live edge bench from walnut with a piece of birdseye maple for the trestle as an accent. I made this for the sun room in my daughter’s home she is currently renovating. I delivered this to her home here in Connecticut last night. The wood came from the Annapolis Md area.
Here’s a side table I completed this spring. It’s my second furniture piece ever, and was a request from my girlfriend to complete our newly-remodeled guest bedroom. It was made using rough sawn silver maple which was milled locally here in PA. Joinery is all dowels. The design was my own, with a rough mockup modeled in Sketchup on a Monday morning and by Tuesday afternoon I was applying finish. Not too shabby!

The attached pictures are for a coffee table I made as a wedding gift for a friend. The entire table is made from scrap strips I reclaimed from the back of my hardwood. I was inspired by your picture bringing your secretary back to its roots so I took mine as close as I could get!
Made out of recycled red oak that were used for doors of a cabinet and it was made using only hand tools
