    Very nice looking table, Prashun. Why does the inlay look pretty noticeable in one picture, but I can't even find it in the other after enlarging your photo?

    kudos on the book matching. It looks great. The scribe line can be the reminder that this is a hand made piece. I have a king sized head board out in my shop all in pieces. I tried finishing every thing with a smoother but after finishing it the tool marks were driving me crazy, so back to the shop for a complete refinish. I prefinished the individual pieces and was disenchanted with the results. I donít like sanding in doors, so now that the weather is breaking, I hope to knock that project out next.

    That's clever, and an unusually practical approach.

    Kudos

    Very nice!
    For a table that might otherwise be relatively clean and simple, you took some trouble with details, both tactile and visual. For example, if a person was sitting at that table in their pajamas and kicked off their slippers, their feet are not going to run into anything unfriendly. The intrepid person would even discover some interesting facets on the support arms that mirror what's going on at the feet.

    Thank you for the nice comments. One thing I don't think I mentioned: there is no glue used in the base. I was planning to glue it, but the dry fit went together well enough that I just drawbored it in a couple places and left the glue out.

    A really elegant and creative work that is masterfully finished. I love your work with the clean lines and subtle detail. Thanks for sharing!
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!

    Prashun, that is one gorgeous table. Every detail is nicely designed and executed. Iím curious how long it took you to build?
