MBT Coffee Table

MBT Coffee Table front view in cherry with bubinga pattern top

This low chest has the proportions of a coffee table and, with a decorative arrangement of panels on the side opposite the drawers, can sit nicely in the middle of a room.  May be a tansu?

The tabletop frame and base are built from solid cherry and the drawer and door faces are cherry veneer.  A geometric pattern of bubinga veneer is used to fill in the field of the tabletop.
