Hall Table

I got a good deal on a couple hundred board feet of ash so the next several projects are going to be ash. This table was based on a table my wife seen at crate and barrel. It has tapered legs and I used Java stain because the model had a very dark finish. If you happen to see a few plane tracks that is intentional trying to match the one my wife seen. I hand cut dovetail joinery in the legs in lieu a mortise & tenon to see if I could do it and personalize the project.

Any comments good or bad are appreciated.

I’m in the middle of building a hall table. What are the dimensions of yours?

Mike – The original piece touted plane tracks signifying it has hand made (on the tag) and prior to making this tablk I spoke to two of the L/N representatives @ one of their shows and both acknowledged that a small amount of this is acceptable. So I guess I figured it was O.K. and most importantly my wife is happy with the results.

This design really interests me. I have a slab of two-inch thick walnut that I’ve finished and been looking for leg designs to use to make a sofa table and this design looks like a good candidate.

I really like the dovetails. It really added a lot of interest to the piece.
