Three of the tables were started about 28 months ago. We moved and I lost interest in woodworking for quite a while.

Inspired by the G&A aurora end tables. Modifications were made to incorporate some cloudlift elements and given an Asian spin with flared legs. Aurora tables have a square top but we didn’t have enough room in our living area for such big tables. Decided to make them rectangular.

I woke up in the middle of the night with the curved drawer handle concept. The middle three fingers fit nicely on the inside of the handle and the two outer fingers fit on the outside of the handle.

Tables are made of cherry and wenge with a splash of ebony plugs. Constructed with mortise and loose tenons.

Well thats a bit of a stunner I must say, and a nice touch with the japanese style curves.
Brilliant features of the timber,and used to its best advantage.
A Question: How do you get the drawer in and out of the frame

Thanks Robert.

The first picture shows a dado in the side of the drawer. There is a runner attached to the side of the carcass that slides inside the dado and keeps the drawer suspended in frame. I hope this helps.

It’s hard to point out just one thing on this table. Handle is awesome, as well as complete G&G design. I like drawer finger joint and rounded pattern edge on top and bottom shelve.

I was happy to have a spindle sander to sand the curves.

Thanks Majuvia.

Truly beautiful! I love the grain on the drawer front. I know what you mean about how handy a spindle sander is on curves. Borrowed the neighbors for my tree project. What a time saver.
