Comments/criticism solicited on this little 'lamp table'. This is probably the first thing I can remember making where Jean said flat out she didn't like it. Didn't like the top, didn't like the legs sticking up, didn't like the crossed pieces at the bottom.
This is a prototype, and I'm going to tweak it a bit... but I still think the general 'look' is fine. And I rather like it.
What I think is the legs are a bit 'heavy' for the diameter of the top (16-1/2")... but I already had the top notched so it was too late to change. On the next ones I'll make the top 17-1/2 to 18", and cut the legs down from 1-3/4 to 1-5/8". I'm not sure I'm completely happy with the 'no apron' look at the top, but I'm also not willing to fiddle with a round one... so I'm particularly interested in thoughts on this.
For what it's worth, this is mostly South American mesquite (Argentina) that I bought by mistake a while back. I think the cross pieces at the bottom may be honey mesquite (another mistake!).
