You know you’re a woodworker if/when:
1. some mornings it’s just too hard to get out of bed… unless you hear a neighbor fire up the chainsaw.
2. You try to persuade your neighbor to trim his trees so you can get some extra wood.
3. whenever your friends, or neighbors are going to throw out some lumber, or a piece of wood, they call you first.
4. You refuse to throw away your sawdust because you can use it to make your own filler (even though you have 4 barrels of assorted sawdust just in case)
5. Your wife chides you for not wanting to throw any piece of wood away.
6. You remind wife/kids not to burn firewood from one particular half of the woodpile.
7. You can’t decide whether to put a piece of wood in the wood-stove, or make something out of it.
And it's a bit painful to see picture like this .

Those two tables are made in American School of French Marquetry by W Patrick Edwards and they are re-creations of the “family table” that belonged to Louise-Marie, the eldest daughter of King Louis-Phillippe of France.
The original was probably made by Alexandre Bellange and exhibited at the Products of Industry Exhibition held in Paris in 1834.
W Patrick Edwards makes his re-creations of antique furniture using only the original tools and methods of the pre-industrial period .
He saves the past for the future .
The full story of making those tables can be read here .
And lots of re-creations of antique furniture can be found on his website : www.wpatrickedwards.com
