I love these sofa tables. They seem infinitely useful. I love the design, the butterflies, the wood and the grain management. I am sure this will be a treasured table in your family for a long time. Well done!

plus the angle cuts reversed on the ends -

Nice work. Spent some time looking at it to figure out some of the things you did here. One of those projects that looks so clean and simple that you don’t notice the really impressive details at first that really show the craftsmanship.

Thanks Dick. I think photo 3 is creating a bit of an illusion. The bevel cuts are both 45 degrees angled down from the top. The bevel on the ends just leaves a small landing at the top (3mm), while the bevel on the front and back is half the thickness of the top, leaving a straight edge of 16mm.
