Super nice, the drawers are a great practical storage feature. How are they mounted in the table? Is there a drawer slide somewhere? Are they just sitting in a pocket? This is a question I had on my last project. How to? The Rosewood is great and I’m sure would look wonderful in any kitchen, it really goes with any style, classy to country.

I’m sure that you can change the settings on your camera for picture size . Do you have the owners manual ?
Very nice table…love to see a close up of the NG Rosewood.

Regards the drawers I made solid timber stretchers between the aprons [ although these could have been MDF or plywood.. NOT ] and added timber kickers and runners for the draw supports. These were only screwed [no glue] so that they could be replaced if they wore or swelled and needed adjustment. Yup just joking about the bigger camera.,.its not the size!
