I just finished this up today, alot of time in this but I like how it came out. I don’t think I need to explain anything, the picture should do it. I’m not sure what type of wood the drawer fronts are? Anyone have any ideas? Before I bought it I forgot to ask, it’s nice anyhow. The rest is African Mahogany and walnut, thanks for looking. =)

Hi Jason,

Nice thing you have there. I’m unfamiliar with “Long Bow” except as in arrows. And what is that plunger thingy? Sorry, it’s probably just me. Nice work and wood choices.

Regards,

Well done. Love the drawers, wood combination and your craftsmanship. I too want to know what that thingy is.

Thanks for the kind words, I like it here!

The part you are wondering about is actual to suport the ends of the inner drawer structure. There is 4 bolts from the midle and then what should look like some type of gear box.

Here’s a better pic….

Jason now thats an awesome table and I assume that the side mounts are so you can raise and lower the casement, very nice on the finish and wood choices.

Very nice work. I love the slight curve to the front. At first glance I thought it was just distortion due to a wide angle lense.

The wood on the fronts looks like it might be sapale. Do you have a photo of it unfinished?

You do very nice work. It is not what I think of as a long bow, but very pretty non-the-less.
