Finally got this one done….............I’m happy.

FYI, the table also disassembles (legs attached top and bottom with hanger bolts, per client request).

‘Exquisite’ is the word that comes to mind.

Taking on that kind of project with that kind of wood is unimaginable to me.

Wow!Flawless work! Perfectly don! What type of finish did you apply on this? The legs are the best.

Beautiful table, very unique design, excellent wood treatment. Is that a die?, or the natural color of the wood? Great work.

Very unusual and unique design (I like it). Your joinery is just perfect as is the finish. The wooden drawer slides are the icing on this beautiful piece.
