    small pedestals

    these are some of the small pedestals for the web site, www.burroviejowoodworking.com (shameless, aren't i?). they are made of borg red oak, and will be finished with blo and clear shellac. they are 3 different heights, and sold as a set of 3.

    Vaughn: Display in a store, arrangement in a nook in a home, for short guys like me to reach the cereal, to stand on when using a big monster wood lathe, the list goes on forever.
