Coffee table. Walnut base, walnut and cherry top. Breadboard ends done with dominos, and the aprons also attached to the legs with dominos.

Inset drawers mounted with Blum undermount slides.

Finished with original waterlox – about 6 coats on the top, about 4 on the base.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful! I like how you used contrasting strips on the sides, so it looks like a frame, rather than a traditional breadboard look.

Cherry framed with Walnut! A beautiful combination of woods, each wood complimenting the other. Your coffee table is beautiful Andrew! Nice work!

Nice little detail with the bead around the bottom of the skirt

Beautiful! That cherry and walnut together look fantastic! I really like your design too – simple and sturdy, but nice details when you look closer.

Really appreciate all the kind words, guys. I’m happy with how it came out – up next are matching end tables.
