An early Valentines gift

A while ago I asked Juan if he could make me my dream light table...a heart shaped one. I drew him this sketch to give a rough idea of what I wanted.

He ended up doing so much more than I expected and spent countless hours working on the table. There are so many things about it that are just so awesome! He reinforced the heart top with wood underneath and has it hinged so it can be elevated. The light inside is nested on a tilted base to match the angle of the table top. The best part is that Juan wired the table so it has an ON and OFF switch plus an extra outlet in case I want to attach a table lamp...or charge my cell phone. ;)
Here are some progress pictures






And the finished product. I love this table so much and cannot wait to start using it!
