I really like the carving on this table. It adds a great deal of interest. I’m not sure of the scale of the piece, is this likely to be used as a game table or a hall table.

IMHO , that top isn’t doing the rest of the table any favors . It is really distracting from your wonderful carvings and the colors just don’t compliment one another . Perhaps a thinner , solid Maple top would allow the rest of the table to show itself in a better light . The top appears to be as thick as the legs are in the view from the front (middle picture) . It makes the table look like a glorified butcher block .

While the table is very striking I would have to agree Dusty – the top is a bit of a distraction from the beautiful apron and legs. What is the intended purpose of the table? Gaming, display, coffee cups, plants??
