I eventually finished this Blacker House sofa table. The wood is Sipo Mahogany with Ebony and poplar for the drawers. I worked off a photo i got from the internet and think i got close enough. The glue-up was some chore i must say. Did the framework in four stages. Thanks for looking

Thanks you all. Appreciate all the comments. I did not make the table as deep as the original. The rest of the measurements should be very close.

Really nice project. Can I ask, in the last picture with the two knobs, does this rack the drawer when you only use one to pull it?
