Splendid Table

Recently while searching through my photo galleries for just the right image for a different story, I realized how many images I have of tables. That’s right, tables and all the many ways that we use them in our lives. Of course it’s not the actual tables that we care about (unless you’re a furniture maker) but rather what we do with them, from the most common use of sitting down to table to eat, to tables used for work, play and everything in between. Splendid Table, the popular NPR program may be all about food, but there are other splendid uses too for tables that my photos featured here will hopefully illustrate.
