I am impressed with your use of the figure. Very appealing. I am starting on a similar project with some equally curly cherry. Fabulous stuff, but a bear to work smoothly. Did you plane or sand? Also, what are the outside dimensions of the table? I’d like to compare the plans I am currently working on to your numbers, considering how well yours turned out.

Ray,
The table is approximately 23”x48”. I found the curly cheery surprisingly easy to work. I first planed the individual boards, glued up the top and then used a thickness sander followed by hand sanding.

Sa-weet! I’d have a hard time parting with that, for sure.
