Very excellent, something especially enjoyable about the drawing as well, but definitely a sweet design and craft.

I like the looks of the table and the knock down Idea! I see the grain of the feet running up did you do any thing to make them stronger? thanks!

+1 on what B13 pointed out, did you do anything to strengthen the short grain on the legs/trestles? Nice design, I may have to borrow it for my own dinning room table the wife wants.

Very nice, the only straight line is the usable surface all the curves gives this piece exceptional flair.
