Some beautiful wood in this piece. How have you factored in seasonal movement on the top ? If the maple expands or contracts, won’t the walnut frame be unhappy ?

Something about maple and walnut. It always pleases the eye. Beautiful work and I see you went with the slow lowering hinges. Those are a nice addition, especially if you have kids.

Have your say...
