Great looking table and really nice photography. I love the clean lines and how well they contrast with the urban scene. I’d suggest taking this table inside. It looks like a rough neighborhood. Nice work.

Alan, this is a nice looking table and I really enjoy this style of furniture. Beveling the top and the legs adds visual interest to the table and the finish looks good as well.

Nice job.

The backdrop makes it look like it should be an add in a magazine. Nice table.

A very nice piece of work. I love the Shaker style. The table already seems to have a patina of use, which makes me think that it will fit right into a working room.

Alan: Wow, what a beautiful hall table. I like it !! I’m building a Shaker hall table right now out of oak, but with only 1 drawer. I thought about 2, but the wife liked 1. Great job, nice photoshots.
Get it isnside before someone comes along and swipes it, and takes it to a pawn shop for $$$$! lol.
