This commissioned piece is a small “Drum Table”. I made two tables out of different woods.

I have posted a full construction tutorial on my blog so click here to see the construction details.

you can add it as a comment…by writing: “click here” “to link to my blog which tells about my project in depth if you want to hear more…”

and that should be it…look at the FOUR brown boxes right above the comment box…and the liltlle chain link is how you make a link…

Beautiful round end table. It does look very difficult to build. It looks very well made and a very nice finish. Nice job. mike

This is an incredible piece! You are an amazing craftsman. I love everything about this. The joinery, the wood, the shape and design, the hardware… This is just so cool. Beautiful!
