I love the legs, great proportions and joinery.

well i know there is still a true way to authenticate one of your pieces john, and i really do like this one….i like the leg system and was wondering if you had added some maple in around certain places for a bit of stark contrast, its just an idea…what would you think of that in a future piece..would like your thoughts

I love this. Looks like you have the nakashima bug. Looking at a piece of wood and seeing what it want’s “to become” is a bit of an art. Strong joinery and natural edges really give these pieces of furniture a presence unlike any other. They just scream out “touch me!” I think this tree definitely wanted to become this table.
