I finished the
tables of solid walnut.
The case drawer and
base are all from solid wood. The boards were laid up and
mitered to allow the grain to be continuous. The design
emphasizes its function.
The base is heavier
8/4 to visually support the drawer case which is lighter and more
delicate. They are linked by stainless rods which still
maintain the clarity of the two parts. It is almost like a
couple, a man and woman, the man is the stronger the woman the for
delicate and more secretive (drawer closed).
He is opened and
exposes all. The marriage band are the stainless rods.
The lower portion is
for books , magazines etc. The drawer is for your imagination...
