Details are nice, the pins in the tray and the lift out knob are very classy.

Thank u for the comments.

Hi John

The top is a glued up sandwich of 5/16” thick figured walnut, 1/4” plywood, and plain sawn walnut veneer (inside surface). The walnut was resawn from a larger piece of figured walnut … I wanted to extend its use as much as possible :). I cut a tongue on the four edges of the glue up and cut a dado in the two sides, the front and the back. The groove is deep enough to allow for seasonal movement. During assembly I applied a small amount of glue to fix the panel at the middle of the sides only.

Have your say...
