A little while ago I finally got around to building myself a dining table. I knew that I wanted it to be an extension table and I planned on making it with some spectacular veneer. Other than that I was a little stumped. I thought it would be fun to do something new to me and in the end I decided to make it with tapered, curving, octagonal legs. That presented some technical curiosities that resulted in a couple of interesting jigs. I wrote an article about how I built the table on my Furniture Blog if you’re interested in seeing a bunch of photos and reading about the process.

Wow.. to those wonderful looking legs, and then the way they blend in with the lower edge of the apron. Nice … Very nice.

how big are the legs on your table? (e.g. 2×2, 3×3, etc.)
