I think the legs look great. I love this table. Wish it was mine.

Thanks for the comments. I agree the legs may be a little “dainty”. I made them out of 16/4 lumber and tried to keep them as big as I could. After the fact, I thought if I made the base bigger so the top would not overhang as much it would have looked better…better luck next time.

Sorry for the confusion. I’m not a woman. Just a guy that happens to be gay and passionate about woodworking, gardening, my partner and my pets. Thanks go to State of MA for recognizing my relationship with my partner. I know there are not a lot of woodworkers out there that happen to be gay but it would be nice to hear from them… for that matter, I don’t care if you are gay or not, I really just want to expand my knowledge of furniture making…

Very nice, proportions are perfect IMHO! It would look nice with a Cherry top too, again IMO. Would look great if made taller etc as a dining Table? Keep up making you seem to have a good eye for design :)

Those legs definitely don’t seem under sized for that table. The taper is kind of extreme but I think that the semi-bowling pin shape works well with it. Very nice table!
