Okay if not for the leather weave I would think it was a coffee table. The walnut is beautiful, and I would love a chance to sit on it.

Absolutely gorgeous. You must be so proud!

Can you share how you made the legs and also how you did your corners?

The legs are like Queen Anne style, cut on the band saw, including the corners. Lots of sanding involved!
