This piece is a direct interpretation of a classic Chinese table from the era of the Ming Dynasty.  The use of Port Orford cedar for the molding to contrast with the black walnut is an attempt to shed a modern light on the design.  Triple miters at the post & rail joints are the key to the timelessness of this simple design.
