I made this for a friend as a house warming present. Just started woodworking last year and really enjoying the challenges and versatility it offers.

Details: Live edge solid two and half inch thick cherry coffee table with beautiful grain on each side that appears to visually fall off from the top, giving the impression of a waterfall. The table is complimented with walnut accents including inlayed dovetail keys on the corners, butterfly joints on each side leg to stop the natural splitting, sliding dovetail shelves and a floating drawer.

The floating walnut drawer has amazing grain pattern from natural wood knots that are filled with high quality clear resin. The drawer is constructed entirely of walnut with dovetail joinery, cherry splines and a birch veener bottom.

Dimensions: 23 w x 47 l x 16 h

Built: 2016

If anyone is interested I started a website to document some of my other work…I try and update it at least once a month (or as projects allow).

I always prefer seeing people use their imagination. Great work.
