Based on a design featured in Fine Woodworking, this table is made of Sapele and protected by 5 coats of hand rubbed Tung Oil Varnish. Of course, any hardwood of your choice can be accommodated. Complicated traditional joinery makes this a strong yet delicate looking accent piece, one which no one would expect would hide a drop down compartment to store personal valuables or home defense items. If that's not necessary, just the table is available and still is lovely. The dimensions are 40 1/2" wide by 14 1/2" deep by 34" high and can easily be adjusted for your space.
