This is a hall table I built a dozen years ago. No mortises, no
tenons, no dovetails--but it has fulfilled its purpose well. The top
is stained and oiled poplar, the rest is black lacquered as a nod to
our many Japanese pieces. The knobs are "solid brass" according to
the packaging from Lowe's. Turns out they are solid pot metal with a
nice brass finish.
Had to build a tapering jig for the legs. Not an heirloom. When my
wife and I are gone it will probably fetch $5 at the estate auction.

I like the black lacquer effect. Nice contrast. Well done.
Looks like Hotei, there? Appropriate, also, if so! Give his belly a rub, for
luck.... or have I misunderstood part of his "meaning", contentment.
