Coopered leg table from ROugh Cut with Tommy Mac. Sorry the orientation of pictures is not upright. Even tried rotating and saving, no change.

Anyway, I decided to make it my own like Tommy says. Instead of regular mortise and tenon for the strecher, I went with wedged through tenons for ease of assembly/disassembly and lend an arts and crafts design influence. I also added a butt squint joint like Tommy did on his garden bench episode.

A foot shorter then the plans call for because of the space it is in. Overall, pleased with the result.

Nice table, and a nice way to add your own “signature” to the project,

Well done,

I never thought of hanging a table from the ceiling.

Sorry, couldn’t resist. :-)

Very nicely done!
