I thought I fixed the title..lol. The original designer and woodworker called it his “Gingko table” because of the upper leg design, curves, reminded him of gingko leaves. This is one of my smaller projects, less wood, etc. but I have to admit it’s one of my favorites, one I found the most satisfying to finish. When I got the heavy glass from the store I was worried about fit of course but I sure smiled when it fit perfectly. Thanks for the nice comments. Very much appreciated.

I used cherry wood. The article appeared in the June 1996 issue of “Woodwork” magazine. Author and designer is George Fagella. The joinery is “interesting”. Good luck and have fun.
