« Part 3: Wenge Inlays Part 4 of Nakashima Inspired Coffee Table series Part 5: Legs are complete and ready for finish »

After toying for some time with the idea of using one long leg along the straight side of the top and a turned leg on the other side, some testing with a mock-up convinced me that it was just not goinf to be stable. I turned towards another idea that would still use one long leg down the center of the table with one cross-leg, if you will, off center in both directions. I think that the leg design will be stable, yet is not too heavy looking.

It still needs some final fitting before I sand and glue up the leg assembly, but I must say that I couldnt resist taking a few pictures.

Thanks for looking. Let me know what you think,

Tim

PS The blue tape was used for lining up the joints.
