Nice job. I'm about to start on a similar project and I'm just in ther planning stage. In the photos, I think I'm looking at a Arts and Crafts design...looks good.
This is a great design that is very well executed. Cuban mahogany -- Wow!
Thanks for your post. I love the bread boards too. I have built two of these tables but with different bases. The chairs are very comfortable and solid. Simply changing the slats in the back and base can give the chairs a very different look.
Nice work I am a big fan of bread board tables. I like the design of the chairs. They look great with this table. I am currently working on a design for a bread board extension table for our kitchen.
