This book is designed to inspire you. The tables chosen by the authors represent a wide range of styles, forms and materials - tables made from everything from driftwood and salvaged oak to electrical wire and recycled traffic signs. Even the word "table" is subject to some creative license (if you think of a table as something you could comfortably rest a hot beverage upon). What unifies the selection is the craftsmanship and commitment to wonder and beauty.

It would be a surprise for any reader to embrace all the styles contained in a book of 500 tables. Expect to hate some of them, or mutter, "You call that a table?" But others will strike you as marvels -- and ideally give you some newfound appreciation of the tables in your life or insight into your craft.

"A feast of ingenuity, grace, and sometimes straight-up wit ... (that) offers lessons in exquisite craftsmanship. You'll be glued to your seat admiring the ingenuity of modern furniture makers. --- Christian Science Monitor

"A huge quantity of outstanding work." -- Rob Porcaro, Heartwood: Inside the Woodshop
