We made this solid cherry console table to her custom specs. The highlight here, as usual, is the beautiful cherry grain on the top, and even on the sides (as in the first pic in the slideshow). The beauty and depth on display is one of the reasons we love working with cherry wood.
The rest of the design is relatively familiar, although the shelf uses a novel screw-and-shelf-pin joinery technique both to allow it to expand and contract, and to leave a small space through which it's easy to run/hide cables.
