Pictured is an end table that we have named the Treasure table.
This was designed by my wife in honor of her dad. This table provides a place where she can easily display some of her important keepsakes and protect them from dust and dirt. The hinged top allows her to change an item or add to the display at any time.
Made of Ambrosia Maple that has a little bit of curl and a few beetle holes that I choose not to fill.
It’s protected with a satin Pre-cat lacquer.
All pictures were taken before the glass was installed.

Very nice design. Love the availability of being able to change the display with ease.

Great work. Keep it up.

Nice idea and really good work. I’ve never seen one before. I like the idea with the hinged top too. Good looking too.
