purpleheart and hard curly maple (with some spalting!) pretty straight forward. didnt quite come out as expected. i originally wanted to use square plugs to join, but they wouldnt line up well.

this uses standard aprons, set into the legs with full dovetails, and reinforced with corner braces.

Wow, this really does match the occasional table I posted! Great minds think alike … or is it just that I copied your idea a year later?

This is a wonderful plant stand!
