Like my other post, here are a few professional shots of this project. This was made from Tasmanian Celery top Pine and Tasmanian Mrytle. Can’t think of more to say now. Thanks

Oh I forgot all the joinery, the finger joints at the bottom and the mortise and tenon joints at the top were all cut by hand. Please don’t ask me why, I will never do that again. :-)

Kaleo, This is a pretty sweet looking table. What are the dimensions?

So, size wise, this is about like a coffee table? Well, it is certainly well done and appears to be quite heavy. You certainly did do a lot of hand cut joints but that is good training. That’s what you are in school for. A really good job overall. Now, as to the comments; it is better for you to make furniture for us to comment on. We all do way to much “commenting”. LOL Keep up the good work.

Thos. Thanks alot, you are right it’s coffee table size. And it is quite heavy. This table was designed for a cabinet project we were doing. We were told to use solid timber for the project. So that we learned to plan and accommodate wood movement, thus the reason for the solid top.

Very imaginative design! And great skill and patience on the joinery!

I didn’t realise it had a little cabinet in the side, very cool. This would make a great piece of kids furniture (not that I’d let my monkeys near anything this nice but still :)

this is one great table. i love the clean lines and the visible joinery. are the door supports pneumatic or otherwise motion controlled so that the door opens slowly? i must say i really like this table and (i hope you don’t mind but,)i’m probably going to take some design elements from it and build one of my own. thanks so much for posting it!
