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?

Yes I have to agree with Dickie75 for a nice peice like this I think you should have put down your foot, and made some nice pulls from scratch, they do take away from the the table.Store bought is not always best.
it is a beautiful piece and I'm sure your friends will love it for decades to come! Sorry, can't criticize perfection :-)
This is a most wonderful piece of furniture
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.
A really nice piece of work, sure your friends were really suprised. my only suggestion, consider making your own drawer pull from a contrasting wood, will give the piece a really finished look and a great deal of satisfaction to you.
keep up the good work.
Criticism: More Photos!
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.
