This is a small table I made to go beside my recliner chair to hold my laptop when I’m not browsing Lumberjocks. It is made from mahogany with maple burl veneer on the top and drawer front. The finish is spray poly.

Great table, Bob! love the proportions, and the joinery!
And, of course, the Burl.

I swear I can still make out your scribe lines for the DT’s. Nice.
