I was asked to donate a piece to an auction for a non-profit on short notice and so designed this piece around some wood I had in the shop. The top, legs and stretcher are cherry, the accents are walnut. I initially made the stretcher through-tenons really long because I didn’t know how far I wanted them to protrude. Then, once I was putting them through the mortise, I was struck by the look of the tenon only going half-way through. So, I went with it and added walnut pins on either side of the legs. The walnut “base” was just having fun as well. I needed some front/back support for “tippyness” but then played around….
Comment and especially critique welcome!!!
