I made this tall hall/office table while thinking about the beauty and grace of gazelle. It is made with cherry. the “head” and “tail” is walnut with stones. The hooves up to the knee are covered with patina copper to give it an Egyptian look. I am not happy with the chest and the top being natural edge so, the next one probably be made with dimension wood; possibly oak. What do you think?
Thanks for looking.

I had to take a double look at your offering. What an interesting view of life comes from the ends of your tools. Makes new meaning of “live edge.” I don’t see Sauder making them by the Chinese container load anytime soon.

That is so cool – I initially in the thumbnail though that was a nice use where the bark edge and the darker apron heartwood on the right side came together.
Then when I saw the legs… thought “HOW COOL IS THAT!”

I think the live edge slab goes better than a dimensioned one would. just seems that a Gazelle shouldn’t have corners…. but what do I know!?

Thanks nomercadies and DrDirt.. You are probably right about the natural edge. I think I have been looking at it for too long.
