Two Tables Might Make A Pair

I was asked to make two end tables by a lady who saw another table that I had made. I thought about some elm that could be made into these little tables for her. So I got started with lots of planing and sanding was I starting a production line, making two of something was a bit different as normally, I would make single items. My only order to follow was a top of around 16"x16" this had to be two boards of 8" which I paired together .The boards are waney edged, cut through and through I wanted to keep this look so a little spokeshave work where they touched and the table tops were done. The legs and rails yes, you guessed they have waney edges too! Leaving the holes and defects as they add to the rustic look that I love. Glancing out the window at the snow and sleet while rubbing on coats of wax to finish the pair of tables similar but not matching, no production line just doing my thing :)
