Made from mahogany and walnut, just finished with spray laquer. The legs are not really inlaid, I rabbited out each corner of the legs and glued the walnut in. At the top and bottom of the legs it is just walnut veneer I resawed. Then jointed it smooth again.

Very nice!! Are the curved aprons laminated or steam bent? I have been wanting to build one like that for awhile.

From what I can see it looks nice. It would probably show up better if it wasn’t up against such a bright background.

Beautiful job. I was just reading an article in Wood Mag. on how to build one of these. I see what you mean about kerfs.

Very well done – I would also like to know how you did the apron

Thanks for posting the table. Beautiful project. How did you handle the joinery at the leg and front apron areas. Did you use and angled mortise and tenon joint?

Happy Thanksgiving!

No, I did not use tenons on the aprons, there are 2 plywood forms, the shape of the table for the carcass, the aprons are just glued to the forms. I was unsure they would stay put, but I built this about 8 years ago and so far they have.
