Based on a picture I saw in Pinterest. Build with local walnut and Koa from my trip to Hawaii. The Koa is used as veneer in the 5drawer fronts. Finish with shellac and bee’s wax. Lots of angles. The top is thinner in the middle and gets thicker towards the edge. The lower shelf is made with 3/16 thick walnut in a weaving jig.
The table is 36 inches wide and 30 high.

this is the second time someone has made my day today! Awesome. Lots of creativity. I like all the negative space, floating top, woven lower shelf…Awesome! How tall, long, wide?

I very much like the arch top drawer and it appears the craftpersonship is wonderful. Lovely wood choices. But I have to admit my art eye does not like the basket weave shelf. For me it is a distraction. Too much going on. This is just the table I have been wanting to build, and after seeing your arch and the corresponding drawer arch, I think I will use that lovely concept in my own. Thanks for sharing this with us. A delight to see this morning.

Now this has subtle details. Looks like straight lines at first glance, but every part has a curve or taper. Love the koi, I have a small stash and really like too see how others use it.

Great job Zipsss!
