Bathtub Reading Table

I recently completed my latest woodworking project. It's a bathtub reading table made of mahogany.



I designed it to be just wide enough between the outside supports to allow felt pads on the inside edges. This prevents the table and tub from being scratched, and provides a nice smooth surface for sliding the table back and forth.

Neato! This is such a good idea. I bet there is a market for it somewhere...

That's a good idea! Nice craftsmanship there. I like all my books wet, though. Just a personal preference.

What a beautiful work. Gorgeous! I was just telling a friend the other day about your beautiful woodwork.....I love the "edge of normal" and I'm right there with you, bro.

That's really pretty! I've never heard of a table that could read a bathtub before. ;-)

I'm working in the breakthrough field of artificially intelligent furniture. Eventually, you'll be able to argue with your toaster about how dark to make your toast...

You don't do that with your toaster now?

Well, I may complain at it, but at the moment it doesn't talk back...

NICE table! I haven't seen anything as nice for sale... there definitely is a market for these.

What a fantastic piece. By any chance, are you interested in selling one? Please advise.

I'm always open to creating an item similar to one I've made for myself. If you'd like to discuss it further, just send me an email and let me know what you're thinking.
