New Photographs of Mother

It was a few years ago now that I made this table, well, I didn’t make it Daren Millman who works with me should get the credit for that. But I did design it and I did take the photographs of it. When we make furniture for people’s homes, as we did here, all that we have to show is a photograph so it’s quite important. I have taken to doing my own photos since I bought a digital camera, except its not quite straightforward, this camera has more knobs, whistles and bells than I care to, or have the time, to understand. So, it is not then surprising that my pictures are not quite as good as they might be. Except I recently had the chance to go back and take another shot. Ann had hung a new chandelier and the room was looking great and so were the table and chairs. Why Mother you may well ask, well that goes back to Saddam Hussain and his “Mother of all Battles” except it wasn’t. This is my “Mother of all Tables” and it is, this mother takes six strong men just to move it about a room and eight to really pick it up.
