Cool looking.
For the top, how did you control the wood movement in your joints? I see that the oak is quater sawn, did you just glue the end pieces on or is there something else there?

This is another gorgeous table. Putting in the mahogany panel adds visual interest to the table.

Nice job.

Kosta I used quartersawn red oak which tends to display some great grain patterns. I also used a light minwax polyshades finish to help bring it out a little more
