The top is Padauk, frame is Ash, and the legs are ebonized Poplar, hey its what i had at the time lol. The top has great character. In designing this table i wanted something with an asian feel but also something that was a little on the architectural side. I feel i acomplished this with the angular shaped legs and the appearance of a “floating” top. The joinery is mortise and loose tenons, and dovetails at the inside rail onnections. The table measures 46” L X 24” W X 18” T Enjoy

That is beautiful indeed !! I hope the Paduak retains that color for you : ) I recognized the Ash right away but thought the Paduak was something else. At first I was thinking that the top should have more overhang , but that would hide some of the details of your project …Great job : )

Thanks guys! The table is finished with seal-a-cell from general finishes and tung oil. Dusty, i wrestled with the overhang idea myself and it may have increased the Asian feel iif it hung over more but decided i wanted the corners of the top to be “even” with the points on the legs.
