My second post here in Lumberjocks :)
As you see the pics, it’s nothing but normal Floating Top Table.
If you have seen my old post ‘End Table’, you can tell that I love tenon and mortise joinery :)
Basically, all the joinery is done by tenon and mortise, and some accents with square peg and wedge.
I’ve tried the butterfly key and Tusk Tenon for the first time, and they turned pretty well.
Finished with Danish Oil, but I might need some wipe on poly for the top.
This time I used white Oak for the top, and it looks even better than reddish Red Oak.
Thank you for watching. See ya soon with my new project :)

Looks great. Like the white oak; it will look gorgeous in 20 years or so.

Amazing work! Love the exposed joinery a lot. This is definitely a great design and implementation of the design. Please post more projects!
