My wife came up with the idea of making a pylon to go along with her desk. Pylon’s are used to tie up the boat when they come into the docks. It is made of red oak and is 20” round and 27” high. Rounded drawer fronts are made of teak. The drawers are put together with splines since the shapes were very odd to fit into the round shape and to add stability to the end to end grain glueup. We ended up using the bottom storage for mineral spirits.

Beautiful piece. I am amazed at how people can make rounded doors like that.

P.S. It actually called a bollard.
