I made this table based on plans I got from a woodworker in Maine. I modified it somewhat, but the used most of his design elements. I used cherry with ebony plugs.

Love the figure on the lumber and the finish looks really nice.

Thanks guys!
The finish is a little shinier than I would ordinarily like, but the good news is – no rings!

Hey – This is a nice looking table!

The overall design is pleasing and the craftsmanship looks tight;)

Great choice of wood, it will age beautifully.

It looks wonderful in the setting.

Great job!
