I really like them.
I’m looking at your other tables using oak and I guess the contrast with the maple and walnut really set off this piece from the other set.

Great looking table and joints. Sam Maloof really designed and inspiring joint that is both impressive and strong.

They look great. My only concern is the wrapped edge. Seasonal movement will wreak havoc on that when it moves.
