I presume no drinks (magazines, books or feet) are allowed on this? Outstanding!

You should have entered it! What a lovely table! I can’t believe you put a T.V. on it. You’re hiding all that georgeous wood grain.

yes, how could you put something on top?
On my workbench I have a piece of 2×4 or something that has a beautiful pink line in it and I refuse to have anything sitting in front of it—don’t want to lose site of that piece of beauty.

And your table is amazing.. Thank you so much for showing us.

Phil – very nice! I was noticing the bookmatch detail on the top and drawers. The cherry and maple make a wonderful contrast. Looking forward to more projects!
