This table is loosely based off of one I saw in a fine woodworking issue from the 80’s. The wood for it cost an arm and a leg but it came out great.

This is truly an amazing design and well executed. I know how much teak can set you back having used it in past projects but you did it justice. Again, beautiful design. Really like the bevel on the top and the leg shape is almost identical to my current project that I am working on and blogging (Asian inspired side table). Together with the teak those elements set this piece off.

Very nicely done. I wonder how it would look with the top ‘bevel side’ down. Did you consider that option?

I like the design very much. Great job.
The natural teak wood colour too, is pleasing.
Thanks for sharing.

Really nice. I love the bevel to the top and the leg shape. I have been toying with a Greene & Greene coffee table design in my head that has similar legs. What are the dimensions at the widest part? Also, how are your tools after working that much teak? You must have some sharpening to do.

That’s a great looking table. I think I’d like the top ‘upside down too’, but either way it’s really nice.
