Hello everyone, I am a self taught woodworker, and thought it might be useful to post a couple of my projects on here and get some comments/criticism from all you experts out there. (Go relatively easy on the criticism though)

This is a hall table that I made from ash as a wedding present for some friends of ours, what do you think?

I would love to try it if I had some drawings as i can't draw.
Did it take long to make?
Best of luck in the future.

Thanks for the comments.

The bottom of the legs are just slightly chamfered, but no glides or similar are fitted. I agree, didn't really like the drawer pulls, but 'she who should be obeyed' chose them.

keep up the good work.

Your friends must have been overwhelmed when they received this gift; it's certainly better than a toaster! You can be darn sure they won't be regifting it ever.

Did you put glides on the feet to protect the bottom of the legs and the floors?

It really is a nice piece.
