Thanks gents: kind words much appreciated!

I have attached two more photos showing the table in its place of honor in what we call the addition (clever name for a room don't you think?). You can see the same black dot detail on the window rosette blocks (detail is also carried through with door/drawer pulls and even the design of the rug).

Very nice work and nice attention to detail on the use of grain to high- lite and make it more visual to look at. It says, here I am, look at me. Very well done

Beautiful desk, Philip.

Your black dot detail carries into the chair seat, as well.

Beautiful.  I'm a sucker for a highly figured grain.  Big Grin

Thanks to all! Hard to beat curly cherry for outstanding character. These pictures were taken with an iphone: no trick photography involved!

Hank: Thanks very much! Used that "trick" for the wide bevel on the ends of the top and it worked out great! Phil
