I made this for my mom for Christmas and it’s the first table I’ve made from good quality wood (walnut). The top is 17” in diameter and was cut from a glued up panel consisting of three, 6” boards using my circle cutting jig for my router. The post was turned from a 3” X 3” walnut post. I cut the legs from the remaining boards left over from making the top. The total height is 24”. Overall, I was very happy with how it turned out… especially the post. However, attaching the legs (sliding dovetails) to the post proved to be rather difficult for me. Two of them attached at the correct angle but the third was slightly off. It turns out that I cut one of the slots in the post at a bit of an angle. Of course now that’s all I can see. If anyone has plans or ideas for a jig to cut dovetails into a round post it would be very much appreciated.
