Looks great, Phil(2)! So you just kind of threw that together with scraps?

The third picture does a great job of showing the warmth of the cherry – just for our photography discussion, what is the difference in the set-up between the first two and the third images?

I just love that. Did you design it too, did you base it on a plan?

Beautiful Phil,

I really like the way the two draws are made out of the same board and the grain matches.

Phil – Very nice! I also like the two drawers – an unexpected extra. I also like the tapered legs.

Nice. The handles remind me of English Arts and Crafts. Like this.

Ethan, flash or flourescent lighting vs. incandescent, methinks…

Yes the third photo really helps, the first two look more like walnut. What’s the finish?

Scraps? You must be finding some primo wood! Very nice.
