My first project with Wenge. I love how it looks with Cherry. I wrote a blog you can read if you wish. Thanks for looking.

GREAT PROJECT!! Are the shapes all cut from patterns you created or are they from a source? Thanks Pat

Pat, I created the shapes. There was an entryway table made by a fellow LJ that was the inspiration. I did my best to create something similar based on his pictures.

Nice build and design. The piece is balanced nicely, and the legs angled at the top look great. Congratulations. Oh yea, and the cherry pops too.

The design and execution is great; love the cherry used on this.
The little bit of mineral-stained grain really adds to the character.
