I had this nice plank piece left over from another project and was not sure what to do with it. I found some nice looking short chrome legs from my daughter’s old futon that we were going to throw out and decided to save them for something. We wanted to do something different and it clicked, lets make a chinese tea table, that would be a great project for those little legs and left over plank. My wife burned in the symbols and the dragon. When we applied the finish it really popped. Eastern red cedar with clear polyurethane finish.

Wow! Todd, What a wonderful piece this is and what a beautiful piece of wood. This will be the focal point of whatever room it is placed in. It is so impressive.
