This was made to go with the chair i made and posted just a few mins ago . Sapele Mahohany all round with Maple drawers. Pulling on the gold chain underneath makes the insert pop up and it can be used as a drafting table then. The sides are veneered oak and the right side is a removable panel which can be popped out using a special bar. This reveals space to hide a laptop or similar sized valuables. There are some rough edges to be smoothed out as it was made to a tight schedule but all in good time!Any and all comments/critiques welcome!

That is a beautiful table. The shaping of the legs and rails is great. What type of finish did you use?
