This side table was designed around the checkerboard which was of sentimental value to my client. Her son had made it many years ago in school but it was becoming weathered and worn. So we designed it into a side table that she could use in her sewing room. The circular top and legs are made of eastern maple and the supporting shelf is made of black walnut to accentuate the checkerboard. A clear finished was used to highlight the natural colors.
