I made this from two mahogany slabs, the top is 6 feet wide and varies 15 to 20 inches wide. I left a bunch of worm holes in the legs. The legs were made from a separate slap, that I cut in half. It stands 35” tall. I used a Danish teak oil to finish.
Ten plus years latter, the table is cracking. There is a 2” crack in the top moving inward. Its located in the center of the table’s tap on the leading edge. I have considered repairing the crack by 1) gluing a new thin piece to the bottom of the table top and 2) using a butterfly joint to add some stability to the table. I’m not sure if either of these ideas are the correct approach.
Suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
