With a full time job and three out of our seven children ill I still managed to complete the table minus some esthetics to be done this weekend along with several coats of finish. I just hope that they find it in their heart to accept my entry for now and I will add some better pictures this weekend. I could have thrown on enough of those little things whatever you call them I do not know with a quick coat of finish and called it done but I had to be honest. O.k. enough of my sob story I made the handle and the little accents out of cocobolo. Since I can see the sides of the drawer through the table I decided to make them out of ambrosia maple to add a nice touch. It took me a long time as I was progressing to come up with the final design. To me it was all about the little things and my boys enjoyed helping me out with this project. Thanks for the challenge and the experiences it gave me.

That was a great idea to have the contrasting wood on the drawer sides to show through the aprons and the full cloud design(I’ll call it) is also interesting on your shelf. Please show it when you’ve had time to finish it. Thanks.
