I built this table a couple of years ago for my girlfriend. Luckily, she’s now my wife, so I got to keep the table ha. The top and the feet are made of walnut that we pulled out of a family friend’s barn. The legs and the shelf are made out of cherry that was milled from a tree in my grandmother’s backyard. I used two bow tie joints to hold splits together. The walnut top has a cherry bow tie and the cherry leg has a walnut bow tie. Both were chiseled out by hand. It was fun to do it that way, but also a little nerve wracking, as I’d never done them before. The walnut feet are mortised to allow the legs to set into them. It’s been a nice table for us and the lady really likes it, so… mission accomplished, I guess.
