I finally finished my wife’s Christmas gift from last year. I designed this on the fly and it was stuck in my head for most of the 16 months. I would work on it a little and get stuck on what to do next so I would put it aside. The octagon shaped main post was actually the first piece I made and the feet were the last. It is made from walnut and maple. The height adjustment uses a threaded insert and aliminum inlay. There is a hidden pencil drawer in the shelf. I used a magnetic push catch off an old entertainment stand to hold the drawer in. I plan on replacing the nobs with shop made nobs. I will post pics when I do. The finish is about 5 coats of wipe on poly and furniture past wax. I am very pleased with the way it turned out.
