This is a beautiful piece. I really like the proportions of this piece. The Bubinga is gorgeous and I like how the bubinga continues inside it is unexpected so is the use of the piano hinge vs. drawers. Nicely done!

This is some very nice work, You have really done a fine job on this. The bubinga looks great with the black lacquer.

I like the design of the legs. For some reason it feels like it’s about to start walking.

Your table is very beautiful. The idea of the piano hinge is smart. No need for drawers in such a small area. I will be incorporating this idea in the hall table I will eventually get around to making. Thank you for the idea.

Looks very nice. Could you take a little time to explain the lacquer application. Water based? Sprayed? Brushed? Sanding sealer? Number of coats.

From another Phil.
