Looks very nice especially for a first. Did you allow for wood movement in the bread board ends?

Very nice table, you should be very proud of yourself. The top is beautiful with the multi-colored oak.

I didn’t expect so many nice comments, thank you. Dewoodwork, yes, I believe I left room for wood expansion on the breadboards. I did this from a plan. I would actually do the joinery different if I did it again (which I probably will because one of my daughters is already eyeing this one). The underneeth side of the top is joined with pockethole screws. One of my daughters gave me a biscuit cutter for Christmas, it seems like that would have been better. Also, as it sits in my house, I notice the edges of the top at the rabbit joint need to be sanded again. The finish on it is velvet oil, so I may just sand it again, or not.

Great job Robbi. Are the legs solid, or hollow? I like the mission style look here.

Bill, each leg is 4 pieces of wood cut with 45’s and then glued together. Thank you MsDebbie, I must say, reading your blogs and looking at your work kept me very entertained while I was trying to decide if I was going to join or not, then I took the leap.

I thought that might be the case Robbi, as the way the grain shows on each side. I like this piece. It sounds like you have a few more coming up. A good way to try out that biscuit joiner.
