Sweet! Are there drawers on the back side or is it open?

Great job, I left the live edge on an Entertainment Center I just finished. Great work on yours, I never heard of Matumi but looks great!

Wow! For not having a “proper workshop” (as stated on your home page) you sure do great work. I’d like to know what you might be able to do if you did have a proper workshop – probably out of this world! Very nice idea. Thanks for sharing.

I love the base; overlapping slabs is a cool thought to keep in the back of my head for later, as long as you don’t mind imitation (the sincerest form of flattery).

Thanks everybody.
currently no drawers, will add later, got a shelf for the entire lenght underneath for leverarch files.
the overlapping gives depth effect and is more life or natural.
need 4 people to carry only the top.

That front really does set off that wonderful top. It is a good think I have a protector on my keyboard, the
drool is terrible. I can only dream of finding a slab of wood like those you have used. This must really make a
terrific first impression on your clients when they walk into your office. Thank you for sharing.
