Well I think I am finally done with the design of this piece. I made a change last night which is actually a regression to an earlier model. I like this change. I have reversed the rails and stiles on the door construction making the stiles be the horizontal member. I read an entry on this site the other day regarding this technique. Sorry I can’t remember who to credit it to. Anyway, Here are two jpeg exports to compare. I think the new arrangement gives the table a low and wide look which is more appropriate for a G&G peice.

It looks kinda busy around the joinery areas but that is just a Sketchup artifact. The lines where things come together will be much less pronounced once executed in wood.
So later this week I will be going over to the lumber store to buy a pile of Mahogany and hopefully get started after about a week of letting it sit stickered.
