I created this piece to fulfill a need in our dining room. Our room is smaller than some, so space was limited, but we needed something to place our meals on beside the dining room table. I created this piece with the space issue in mind. The entire piece is made of walnut. It has one drawer for silverware or placemats. It also has a shelf at the bottom. This piece can be made in any kind of wood you desire, however the look will be different. Stain cannot replicate the true color of walnut. The size can also be altered to fit the space you would like to fill.
