So my parents are moving to northern Maine in a few weeks. They’ve lived in Oklahoma almost my entire life so that would be over 43 years. They are moving to a house right on the coast. It is beautiful there.
Anyway, they are getting rid of some things as they are moving into a smaller house. One of the things they are not taking is a worn-out coffee table they have had since I was a baby. I wish I had a picture of it. I probably have a picture from my pre-digital days. Those poor photo albums are buried somewhere still.
The table was cherry and was an oval shape so that there were no sharp edges. I am the oldest child and I used that table to help me learn to walk. My sister and brother came 3 years and 6 years later, and they also practiced their first steps by walking around that table.
My dad is a woodturner and he came up with the idea that he would take the legs off the coffee table and make us each a vase.
Here it is:
Here it is with the top removed.
And then I was just having fun taking pictures of it.
It’s quite a treasure for us.
