Walnut Tea Table

I prepared the table top a year ago but couldn’t get a good design.
Making it simple is the solution for me very often.
Legs have curves and rounded edges and it positioned 45 degree
from the apron. Also has small but very useful 3” deep drawer.
All made with walnut. No stain. Used 4 screws to attach the top.
Finished with water base poly 3 times (sprayed).

Ok… help a novice out, here.
This a very classy, 1940’s (in my opinion) style table… you should be very proud. The line of the leg and that rich color… great.
Question: Why are those two light colored “bowties” there?
Like I said I’m a newbie… and I’m gonna ask.

Hi Wiggy
There is a crack along the butterflies. It’s a nice accent covering a crack on the board
also fortifies the natural defect too. I missed focusing on it.
I may add more pics focusing on it.

Simple always works. I overthink projects all the time too. Nice walnut.

Have your say...
