This is a mission style coffee table that I recently completed. Hope you all dont mind the difference in the pictures, some are without flash some are with. A friend of mine gave me the walnut, and this is what i turned it in to. Hope you all like.

Terry, this is gorgeous. I enjoy the look of mission style furniture and walnut is such a warm and good looking wood. I like the way you framed the top as well.

This is a nice piece.

Thanks for the kind words, it varies from the original plans that I had found. The top is framed because after I had the two boards glued up, when I removed them from the clamps it had almost an inch and a half of twist from corner to corner, with no way to correct this I had no choice but to cut it down into workable widths and re face joint them. When this was complete the boards were only a half inch thick, my fix for this was to frame it as seen in the pics. The other change was the slat bottom shelf. The original design called for only one stretcher in the center, I changed this to what you see for added stability and versatility.
