Despite my Southern friendliness, I have bit of a mean streak.

On Thursday we visited George Walker‘s home and workshop in Canton, Ohio, to shoot some photos for his upcoming articles on furniture design for Popular Woodworking.

We scouted the first floor of his house and looked at a very nice tall case clock he built, plus a drop-dead gorgeous secretary. Both are in kicking tiger maple (Mr. Walker has a tiger maple monkey on his back).

When we met to pick a project to feature in the photograph, I chose a nailed-together pine boot bench with a routed heart-shaped cutout on either end.

“This piece would nicely show off your ideas about whole-number ratios and column orders, don’t you think?” I asked.
