Here is the right side of the sofa! A mirror image in Pecan of the cherry end table. Same bat size, same bat descriptions!

Very nice job on this table. I like the design and even attempted it myself once.

Thanks guys!! I went to our local lumberyard, and saw a 8’ stick of Pecan there, and had to sit on it for over a year to find one similar in color, so I could build this table. You can’t imagine how heavy it is!! They say nut bearing tree’s are some of the most dense in the forest! I really love the color of pecan, just gorgeous! I still have one more piece of lumber!!!

This is a beautiful table. I have never had the chance to work with pecan but it does look like a gorgeous wood.

Thanks for the post.

that is a nice looking table. I recently finished a small bedside table for my oldest daughter similar in look except I went without the drawer.
