Did this totally on a whim. No plans, no prior thought. Went out to my shop, saw some wood laying around and just decided to have some fun with.

Real nice work, especially for off the cuff. I’m usually all about symmetry and balance but I like the combination of dowel shapes and inlays. The color contrast with the top and inlays works out quite eye pleasing. BTKS

Really nice job! I like the legs and top also, nice. I like to go into my shop and build stuff off the cuff also, but you obviously have nicer wood laying around than i do !!! :) Just built a little computer desk for my son today, same theory as you but mine is painted plywood. Those are the kind of projects i love to do, Freedom of design and being able to be creative make a day in the shop much more enjoyable than building something for a customer. again , really nice job.
