I’ve built several of these tables using walnut for the top and maple for the aprons and legs. These tables are for a guy that wanted them to match his existing furniture, which is black and red oak two tone. The tops are red oak with ebony stain and poly top coat. The aprons and legs are finished with Blo, tung, and poly. I was a little skeptical of the idea of black and oak, but I think they turned out pretty decent and he is pleased with them. Thanks for looking.
