Fun animal table witch looks a lot more expensive and complicated than it really is.
You don't need very experienced woodworking qualities. If you can handle an electric jig saw you can do this!
Looks great in an ethnic styled room, an Africa theme or  a child's room with jungle theme. 
And I an sure many of you will be inspired to do variations with other animals, although the wide-legged posture of a drinking giraffe is very inspiring.

Making the pattern took forever and the color still run under the tape a bit, but it looks more like fur like that. Thanks for the instruction.
I made a Zebra TV table in the same style too.
