The table contains 100 .'different j kinds of woods, and all were grown: in Haywood count v. The novel inlaid table is on display at the Wavnes-1 ville.

The table was built in an old house, and as Mr. Miller says, "away from bothering folks." "With 22,4.!.r) pieces of wood lo whittle out, and glue together, I figured-1 could nut afford to be both ered." Jle averaged working on the table about .' hours a day, lor the 18 months. Mr. Miller is a cabinet maker bv trade, and in making the- table, which weighs 175 pounds, used only four tools a pocket knife, a saw, .plane and wood file. He admits that the knife hows signs of wear, and blushes when asked if he cut his finger --dur-mg the process of cutting out the 22,4.'I5 pieces. He admitted, how ever, that he did cut. a. . finvcr whon : small block split unexpectedly. I The top of the table is made of 500 stars, the scheme being worked, out with different colored woods. The helf under, the table has 300 stars All the pieces were glued together. arid fine wire used to strene-then the piece of furniture, It is Mr. Miller's belief that the table will last for 200 years. It is of his own design, and he sough no advice, and did not have any help. l m giited at whittling, and mak ing things from wood, and I got a lot of pleasure out of the job. It took a lot of patience, but when you like to do a thing, the patience is forgotten." Most of the wood used in the table was cut in the forests and brought in by Mr. Miller. He dried it in his homemade kiln, and sawed it out with handsaw. It was a problem to get 100 different kinds of woods that grow in Haywood county, but he refused to jse any other. , 1 Several years ago Mr. Miller owned a repair shop in town here, but, he explained that people rushed him with work, and broke his health, and he moved to the country, to regain his health, and there it was that he conceived the idea of the table.
