Flickr holds so many wonderful photos of handmade artisan creations. It's a great place to go for inspiration because many artisans use Flickr to host their picture and will usually have links to their website. I ran across this wooden side table and was taken aback by one thing…

...It's all one piece! Usually when I spy tables made from stumps without any additional processing, they usually have additional metal legs. This table is made from the same piece of wood and its legs are part of the original tree. How cool is that? I'm pretty good with a chainsaw, but not that good!

This piece came from artist John Swanson from atalou's Flickr stream. Although I was unable to find any internet representation for John, I wanted to pay tribute to this piece that is quite possibly the most beautiful piece of furniture I've seen all week.
