Very nice! That’s a big slab of wood—is it 12/4? The dovetails are a nice touch.

The slab started off about 30×78x3-1/2. There is a huge knot that runs underneath on the left side that dried with a big crook in it so after a few hrs with the power planer and a couple passes through the drum sander it finished out at 2-3/8. There was also a crack that ran down the center which more or less shaped the legs. Ripped off the piece for the top then took an ax and split off the excess from the crack and refined it a bit for the legs

What type of dovetails are those? They look pretty strange compared to what I’m used to.

At first I thought you got the dovetails backwards but looked closer. What exactly is that joinery?

Man, that’s a great look. Does the mass of it keep it from being tippy? Its a great use of space…impressive.

Dovetails are just angled instead of square. Thought it would look more interesting from the side. The legs are also angled so the weight is centered to keep it from being tippy. Plus it weighs a ton
