Hi, this is a bar height table made out of maple. I had a lot of fun in the making of it because it was challenging and of course, really rewarding to see it come together nicely. I built a 45 finger joints sled to make it(see my projects) and it worked well. The stools were posted in a previous project too. I’m really happy with my decision to make woodworking my full time job. I look at 2017 with a lot of projects to come with a large smile and thankfulness to be here just where I am.

Best wishes to all of you!

VERY NICE table with a clean design. The finger joints, and your cutting jig, work very well. Thanks for sharing.
The jig, with your adjustable angle idea, is on my to-do list for sure.

Wow, that is very elegant. A whole lot of angles going on there. Supreme craftsmanship.

Wau that looks great. The MCM inspiration shines through. That 3 part fingerjoint looks complex- cant realy see how the short stretcher is joined into the fingers?

Thank you for sharing!

That is really very nice. With some dimensional changes you could also make a nice computer table using that technique.
