I’m normally not a fan of combining several species of wood, but you used them all very well. This is one of the better of the challenge pieces in my opinion. Many of them look very similar with a little personal flare, but I think the wood selection makes your’s somewhat unique.
PS. I would love to have all those species in stock at my shop! I have to mail order or drive 100 miles. Its a bit pricey for me!

Nice job! I’m with Jeff. I like uniformity, not contrast and multiple species mostly makes a nice piece look like crap. You’ve done a very tasteful combination of multiple species that has made me rethink my blanket dislike of that.

You did a beautiful job of putting the different woods together in a way that works. Good job! You had to have put a lot of thought in it.

Now that’s nice work….........you’ve taken the Thorsen side table and made a clean characature-like piece of the original and that’s not easy to do.
