Pull up a chair

This is my husband Jesse. When he's not busy looking geeky/handsome, he sometimes likes to build furniture. Really nice furniture. I'm okay with this hobby of his. Recently we decided on a whim to put our fine-but-not-super-cool dining room table and chairs for sale on Craigslist, and when they quickly sold, we were left with no dining room furniture. So Jesse built us this beauty:
The top is made of solid walnut, with a natural finish.  We ordered the legs from, and I love the way they look.  For the moment we are living with the chairs from our patio table, until the checkbook says we can order ones we like better.  The stumps were actually drying out in our garage for a future project, but they're sort of growing on me, so who knows, they just might find a permanent home as stools.  "Rustic-modern," folks, that's what that is.  --Karen
