This project was inspired by the simplicity of Ming furniture but takes on its own character. Excepting the drawer fronts, which are ash, the whole piece is made from a single slab of wood.

The continuous grain Ash draw fronts are amazing and really add to the piece. What is the finish you used?

BEAUTIFUL. I love it. The two woods really compliment each other and the grain really pops out.

Greta job. The ash drawers makes the table really stand out. I always love finding an ash board with that kind of character.

Is it just an illusion or do the legs have a slight tapper from bottom to top?

Regardless, it looks great!

Beautiful work … the pyramidal sweep of the legs (unless my eyes deceive me) give a temple-like feel to the piece.
