This table was made from Black Walnut (with help from the Lumberjocks – check some of my old Blog entries!). It was fun to design and make. The corners features an interesting interlocking mitre joint.
The drawer is made from curly sycamore and features hidden metal runners with a self-close mechanism, a cool feature! The drawer has a finger grip moulded into the bottom edge.
I have full step-by-step pictures here.....

Cheers
Phil

Very nice indeed, love the transition from the flutes to the straight edged corners

What kind of bit did you use for the flutes?
