Very nice, I like it. I like how the curves on the aprons follow the curves on the drawer which accents the legs. You tied it all together.

I really like this table. How did you do the sides? Are they laminated, veneer, or solid wood? Very nice job!

Thanks for the kind words to everyone!

Hi toxicoval56,
Thanks for the compliment! The sides are solid wood, cut on the table saw with the fence clamped to the table at an angle to the blade.

Very nice work! This has an exquisite shape. Lye-darkened cherry…that’s a new one on me. I like that.

Very nice work and design.
And very nice job with the photography. I think that must be one of your interests/ professions also.

That’s so very elegantly shaped. I like the way the drawer follows the lines of the legs.
