pretty nice table…

I do have a little Critique thou…

I’m not really much on Paint.. Any paint for that matter… but the paint job looks great.. it’s not that thou, it’s the handle… I think the Drawer Handle is sligntly out of place… It seems to be big enough that in my opinion more of the Focal point.

When I Look at it, I see more the Handle cause it stands out more.. Instead of the The nice table top and the Camber or the legs…

All in all, I really like the table, you did a very good job on it…

Thanks for sharing.

Nice job Joe. The paint works for me on a small table like that made from pine.
