I’ve made a small end table and a coffee table out of white oak recently. They were fun, but I wanted to try something different: something not white oak and not rectangular with legs at the four corners. So, I decided to try my hand at a elliptical top with a single post with feet (or legs).
In any event, this is what I ended up with. I have no idea what name to give the style. It took a while because I was designing it on the fly and always changing my mind. On the advice of someone on this site, I tried my hand at something called “Korean joinery” for where the legs meet the post. That was the most challenging and nerve-wracking. In any event, I have 3 coats of natural Watco on it at this point. Maybe one or two more coats of that then some varnish or poly on the top. Hope you folks like it. Any comments would be welcome!
