Nice and yes pretty unique. Does the metal run all the way under the wood from one side to the other? I like the look.
Though I have to admit, the clumsy me that stubs my toe on normal unobtrusive stuff sees that steel edge coming down to the floor and thinks…. oof that would hurt.

My first thought was toe smashing and shin scraping but I still like the looks. Just need to have a nice large room to put it in. Unfortunately that won’t work in my small house.
Sure has a unique modern/retro look to it that is really appealing.
Well done.

Great effect with the fusion of wood and metal, I see it as a great way to minimize the floor space it would take up if all wood.

It also gets my toes curling thinking about a “misstep” in a dark room 8^@

Well done Drew!

I agree there is an element of danger in this design – a ‘fill’ of the same wood into the steel end cavities would be a solution and add some more feeling of heft and solidity to an otherwise very interesting design concept.
