This is a curved front sofa table with a drawer and a backrest. I use it as my home workstation. The carcass is black walnut with poplar parts and the top is hickory. The backrest made from the top cutout keeps my computer monitor from sliding off the back. As a highlight to the backrest I glued a strip of walnut to the bottom. The hickory naturally has a two tone. I finished it with Watco natural then satin wipe on poly. The walnut reminds me of chocolate and looks tasty next to hickory. Lumberjocks gave me the idea for the wood combination – thank you very much!. The design is my own.
The curved front was made by bandsawing an 8/4 chunk of walnut. I remembered to match the drawer front to the carcass parts for a one-piece-of-wood look.
