This is a Granadillo end table I just finished with a continuous “waterfall” leg on one end. I hand made the complimentary steel U-leg out of some scrap metal I had and welded it up. Table is finished with Tried and True oil, sealcoat shellac, General Finishes HP water based poly, and finally a thin coat of wax on top.

Thank you for all the kind words everyone! The joint is a 45 degree beveled joint which is secured with dominoes. I definitely cant afford the Festool Domino but lucky for me we have one at my jobs shop I used

Thats a nice piece, i have never seen a piece of granadillo that big here, even tough we harvest them, although not anymore, and the trees i used to get pieces from were young ones, maybe 20 years old.
nice job!
