In 2012, we noted, "This is the beginning. Most creations will be custom orders. Presently there are four shapes of tables (Bean, 4Corners, Smile, and Jalapeño), each of a different size, with three different tabletop design motifs (Dowel Delight, Organic, and Swirl). Every tabletop design is unique. Each tabletop serves as a tableau, a visual work of art. But these glass-topped tables combine form with function: as end tables, corner tables, and coffee tables. In addition to tables, Art of Dowel® hopes to provide other furniture product lines in the future."

In 2015, the future has arrived. While all previous table designs are available, we now forge into "2.5 - Dimensional functional art," as epitomized my Big Bang Blue, featured on the home page as 2-D wall art, now here as 3-D tabletop with tablebottom:
