first custom order coffee table

Here is my first custom order piece finished. I supplied the coffee table and they chose the colors (with my help and colors on hand) The coffee table will be going to a young lady in her university home. The table was perfect. It is solid wood and very durable. The color choice looks great and both her and her Mom are happy with the end result.

it came a long way from this
