Beautiful design and very useful piece of furnitue. I like those legs crossed beams – nice and interesting detail.

Truly beautiful. Unique and Incorporating lots of differing materials. I love the cross braces at the base. And the best part, you obviously enjoyed making it. I too would love to hear more about the bullet found in the milling.Do tell!
