Thanks Paul, need to keep her happy so I have a reason to keep coming to the coast!
Brian, Teak is a real nice wood to work with, grain can be a little unfriendly sometimes but usually straight. Very oily so planning is actually fun, this Teak was Burmese I think, 4/4 stock cut in the 1970 s bought it a W.G. Channings in Edmonton, we won’t talk about the price!

Looks really nice – I like the proportions & the grain pattern on the top.

Looks good and I like the contrast between the top and legs /stretchers .I think Mom will like it and you will be in the good books for a while .When did that shaper wander into your shop ?

Thanks all,Klaus, shaper was there last time you were over, use it as a router 90% of the time still need to redesign a more practical fence!
Yes John, the order/request was made last September when she moved into the Condo! Only a year? True Krenov influence! LOL! Did have to find and buy the wood and let it climatise.

your joinery is beautiful, I really like the way you matched the pieces on the top, but most of all, the design is so clean and fresh. This is masterful. BTW, how is your saw blade doing :-)

I’m surprised no one is freaking out about the legs being mortised into the solid slab top, given all the wood explosion hysteria here.
