“Like grasses swaying in a summer breeze, the fluid motion is visible in the solid form of the wood.” And so the legs flow into the stretchers, and to the top of this table:

Dimensions: 36” wide, 10 inches deep, 9 inches tall

Material: Construction-grade SPF (spruce, pine, fir)

Finish: None

Looks like a miniature sitting on a railing. If it’s the size you say that’s a huge beam under it. LOL. Design is nice. Well done
