I agree with Shawn: Great job. Did you use a pattern? It’ll certainly last a long time.

Nice work. The craftsman and shaker styles are great to cut your teeth on. Straight forward work with a timeless design. Good job.

Nice job Brian. It looks like you have an entry for the Thorsen Table challenge. I was thinking of making mine with a similar look.

such clean lines to match the strength of the piece and the wood. Very nice

Did you make the table top from solid wood, or use plywood?

Thanks again all! I didn’t think about entering that piece to the contest though – think I should?
Bill: the entire piece is solid wood (top included). I glued the top up from 3 pieces.

I just entered it – thanks for the inspiration Deb! I guess you can only enter one?

I think it is limited to one for the official challenge but you can show us as many as you’d like!!
