One of my favorite editors in FWW magazine is Mario Rodriquez. This is my version of his coffee table with the curved taper legs. Making the leg were the most exciting part of this table, using a spoke shaver and a newly restored vintage no. 3 Stanley hand plane made this project enjoyable. With just some attachment of the top and finishing left I’m really pleased with how it turn out. Thanks for viewing…Blkcherry

Good stuff….Can we get a shot of the table top attachment method?

I assume that the legs are joined to the stretchers with M&T?

I to like MR work in Fine Woodworking
I saw this table and hope to build one some day. Did you taper the edge of your legs like MR did on his or did you leave it square. It looks square in the pic

Nice Job
