This is an exceptionally fine piece. Very well done. It looks like legs are both hexagonal and tapered. That is one of several features I really like. I may try to copy it.

beautiful table but the stringers don’t really make my day, everything else is excellent

Love the tabe and the contrasting woods. The legs also. But I have to say, I’m with recycle1943 in that the base, although obviously requiring a lot of finesse and talent, somehow doesn’t fit the piece as well visually as a more simple option.

I feel that the bottom frame is necessary for the structural integrity of the unit. But the criticism is correct that the overall visual design is not consistent top to bottom. Any suggestions as to how to modify the design would be appreciated

The top of the table is a kind of colonial arts and craft design while the bottom is more of a modern artsy type design. This mish mash of styles is the problem with the table. Their is no overall design philosophy

I think this is an amazing job
I’m making one now from reclaimed lumber and will not be anywhere near this caliber but I can see how the complexity of the stringers may pull the eye away from the top. With my limited skills I would have just had the two end stretchers and the one down the middle.

Awesome joinery on leg’s cross beams. It took me some time to figure out ‘how?’

I’ve looked at the table more than several times now and I still love it from mid-leg up, as already said – GREAT job !

It may improve the table if I installed a bottom shelf across the bottom frame
It would not touch the legs but would kind of float there
