I built this table out of so many different types of hardwood that I lost count. This was very experimental. Some things are fine others aren’t. The sides are nice, the drawers were supposed to hang and I don’t really like them but since the wife greased the slides they work fine….oh yeah she married me.

The top was supposed to have light shinning up through but I never got around to that. Oh did I say I like the sides…...

Great Shawn! It does look like something out of his mind.

Good job!

This looks like furniture I saw on display in an art museum in London. Very cool. You have an artistic flair. Good job.

Interesting and beautiful. Remember, your wife is your best critic and most difficult customer to satisfy. And that goes for everthing, not just woodworking.
