About a year and a half ago, I was finishing work on a new coffee table for my office. Earlier this year, I shared some pictures of the finished table for Jesh’s “Made from Trees” prompt. Both posts prompted questions about what would happen to the table when I retired. At both points, retirement was too far in the future for me to worry about it. I knew the table wasn’t coming home. We don’t have a place for a coffee table, and our cats would destroy the “live edge” in about a week.
There was no shortage of people interested in taking ownership of the table.
I wasn’t interested in selling the table. I wasn’t interested in holding a lottery for the table. I just wanted the table to go to a good home. I had a few options. It was a hard choice, but the table has a new home. The new owner is taking the whistleblower approach. The person’s identity is being protected. Everyone is happy.
