Well my wife stated I had to make her a table and with certain measurements ? If I had to start over again would have maybe used some different wood and used little lighter stain but it turned out nice for her.
The top was my first attempt at miter joints on the top and used dowels which is the only part of the piece I could have rethought a little. The rest of the pieces were poplar cut to fit in the inset to show the grain of the wood.
The side of the table splines were hand cut with purple heart for extra strength 4 1/2 wide and 181/2, with the long side 4 1/2 by 24.
The bottom shelve is held by two supports between two of the legs.
The legs were cut in with my router using a 1/8” bit which was done on two of the outer edges of each leg. Yes that took some marking and rechecking…... They were also tapered in slightly with my tapering jig prior to routing the tops.
The final table is very sturdy and hope she likes it for mothers day when she sees the final outcome..
