Hi folks I would like to make an entrance table that looks something like this.

I'd appreciate your comments on the dimensions and the proportions etc. the table is rather narrow as the hall is rather narrow and we need to keep some room to pass by. It is a rather busy route. I want a contempory look more on the modern design side, so if anyone would like to comment on how I can get this modern look, it would be apprasiated.
Also I want a dark finish so what are some suggestions for wood.
Here is the picture with some dimensions - sorry metric guy here.

I am unsure of the height. What is a recomended height for an entrance table?
And just to let you see the frame construction I have made the top transparent here.

Just to help your give me all your wisdom here is an exploded view on how I am thinking of doing the joints. Any comments on how to make this would also be welcome. I will be using hand tools. (neandre ) I have no machinery except a sliding mitre saw that I just bought for making my small shed.(LOTS of siding to cut so I broke ranks - time)

What size saws (tpi /ppi) etc. and type of chisels etc. would you use to make this? I will have to get a few tools so I can get soemthing to suit this project.
