Brian, the joinery adds a unique look to the piece and the maple inlay adds to the visual interest of the table.

This is a very interesting piece that combines both art and functionality.

Beautiful benches. Just gorgeous, the finish and construction screams to say touch me. Awesome pieces. These are pieces of architecture.
