I really like the contrast between simple clean lines and the more rugged joinery around the drawers and top surface – immaculate!

I LIKE it. I would have never thought to cut fingers deep but it really adds dimension to table. Beautiful drawer fronts and I love the way the drawers appear to be floating above the frame. Great Design

Really nice. Big fan of walnut mixed with anything else. Like the protruding box joints.

wow… that’s a fantastic piece! I gotta keep my sweetheart from seeing this, or i’ll hear the inevitable “that’s nice.. why don’t you build us one? bats eyes”... well done! I especially like the contrasting woods and the use of the end grain on joinery (mortise for the divider, finger joints) for detail.

I really like the design of this. The only thing I would have changed (and this isn’t a criticism—just a comment) is to have made the drawers (and therefor the entire top) shallower. Right now, to my eye, it appears top-heavy—like the legs are aren’t quite stout enough for the top. Structurally, I’m sure it’s solid as a rock. Regardless, nice work!

Thank you for the feedback. I should have mentioned I built this after working on some cabinets for the shop (I need to post) which was not very exciting, so I felt like making something very unique. I started with a rough sketch, an idea of where in the house we would place it, and started building. It was nice not worrying about a specific plan and just building. Looking back I agree with garbonsai from certain angles the overall thickness of the top could be decreased about an inch, I really wanted to use as much of the figured walnut as possible so I went with thickness you see in the pictures. A fun project and I appreciate the comments.

Awesome table.There are a lot of great reasons for you to get a side table. For one, they can be very aesthetically pleasing. If you pick one that matches your other decor, then a side table can add that little finishing touch that brings a room to life. Also, they are great for any place where you need some table space, but don’t have enough room for a full sized table.
