The side table is made by me and sarah.and this is the first time we try tu make such furniture.It seems not bad,because our friends love it.
Because of some elements of G&G style furniture were comes from traditional furniture of chinese and japnese.But in china few people knew such styles of furniture,so when we first contract those funitures,it really seems familiar.It looks so beautiful and elegant.We all loved it deeply.
It’s so lucky,we have read some great book which were written by Darrell Peart.That’s so helpful for us to knew those details of making such furniture.And we are greatful.
I think maybe next time ,we can make such furniture better.

Beautiful, What you did with the legs looks totally cool. How you jointed the ends I would like to see more pictures.

Wonderful. You married styles of furniture and made it your own. It’s like Tansu only better.

Please post more often.
