Used a chainsaw, various sanders, and a drill on this. The legs are book-matched and the result of splitting a semi circle in two, lengthwise. The pile that this table came from is the last pic. The bowtie is actually 3/8” thick walnut with a copper overlay. You cant see it in the first pic but there are perpendicular maple 1/2” x 1/2” x 8” stabilizers flushed in the bottom of each leg to prevent it from tipping either way. The legs are doweled at three places where they meet in the middle and the top is doweled into each leg. Finished with Danish oil and a wax mix. Thanks for the looks and comments.

That is one good looking table. I bet you will never find another one just like it! Is the wood wet when you build it, or has it been lying around long enough to dry?
