Figured Walnut and Chinquapin Coffee Table with Glass

I was awarded the 8th Annual Rising Star award at the NW Woodworkers Gallery in Seattle for this piece.  This coffee table is seemingly simple in design but with many subtle details it comes together into a strong piece.  The Walnut top is joined to show continuous grain that wraps around the whole piece.  The miter joints are strengthened with Chinquapin keys.  The through drawer features hand cut dovetails with steel rod pulls that are capped with Walnut buttons.  The glass rests upon steel rods that are capped with Walnut buttons.  Beneath the glass lies inlaid Chinquapin strips that are in line with the steel rods.  The base has Chinquapin feet and on the outside corners of the legs are inlaid strips of Chinquapin.  The look I was wanting to achieve was a high end , retro look with a contemporary feel.
