This is my first woodworking project: a black walnut Nakashima-inspired coffee table. My wife and I wanted a Nakashima style table, only to find they are quite expensive. With some instruction from my father-in-law I worked on practice pieces before each step on the actual working piece. I am happy to say I did everything myself. I did a lot of research and wanted to replicate the process that Nakashima went through.
