    extraordinary Derek - a really beautiful piece. And the pulls, placed below center, look absolutely right. Well done.
    If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything.

    Matt, as with most design elements, one begins with the traditional .. in this case, pulls positioned centrally. It occured to me that this drew the eye to the pulls, and they looked intrusive. I positioned them lower, and this altered their feel. With the lower positioning, my thought was that this way the look is interesting but harmonious. Your thoughts?

    Nice work. What type of tree is jarrah? Like what plant family. Im always interested in different woods than the general US domestic. Im in Hawaii, so local grown variety is all
    over the place.

    Hi Zac

    Jarrah is a Eucalyptus, and only grows in Western Australia.

    It is extremely hard wearing - was used for building piers, railway sleepers and even paving roads in London.
