Walnut, with reverse taper legs. Legs dyed darker mission brown, finished with four coats of Danish Oil. Difference in color between table top bad breadboards is not as strong as pictures make it seem. The Sun in Italy really brightens the photo!

Very pretty table and should be strong too! No dancing on top—scuffs the wax!

Well done project!

Great looking coffee table—I love those tapered legs! (What can I say—I’m a leg man!)

I love this table and would like to create something similar, would you be able to answer a few questions for me?

Are the legs tapered on all four sides or just two? It looked like all four but is hard to tell in the pics. Also, what are the dimensions of the legs, and how much are they tapered? And what are the dimensions of the stretchers?

Thanks so much for your help! I am a relatively new woodworker, I’ve built quite a few projects but always from plans, I don’t have much design experience yet.

Have your say...
