Very well done. A nice match to your first table. The joinery looks just fine.

Stepping outside the box and making mistakes once(LOL) is the way we learn. Then in my case remembering to do the thing learned again. LOL! Now you have to make comfortable chairs or a sofa for the media room?

When you have joining problems consider a Dutchman or a bow tie which George Nakashima used to stabilize large gaps.

Ya did good!

Outstanding, Randy.
You gotta love mesquite, voids and all.
I envy your ready access.

yes sir randy, your making some outstanding pieces….love it….just a idea for you, one thing i started to do was to give the wood i would put walnut on the bottom of the legs, makes them look a bit more classy…maybe give it a try sometime, but you did a great job here

looks great Randy. Its safe to say that you did that tree justice, and its also pretty cool that you got it off you property- there’s something even more fulfilling.

Now all you need is a live edge sofa table to match!
