Latest project I’ve been working on slowly for a few months. It’s white oak and walnut with a tung oil finish, then paste waxed. Curved apron wasn’t too hard, but the curved mortises in the legs to exactly fit the apron was a bit tricky.

I’m a little worried that the bottom shelf will expand/contract and pull away from the legs. But I didn’t want to use plywood because the wood color likely would not match the top. The shelf is glued and toe-nailed from the underside.

Fun little project.

Really a beautiful piece. Proportions, color, details, all very graceful. Classic & contemporary at the same time.

Did you steam bend the walnut apron, or veneer it around a base plate?

Michael,

I used 1/8” veneers that I cut on a bandsaw. Clamped and glued around an MDF form.

Nice table; love the design and your execution. I think you could have fastened the bottom shelf to the front legs and set the back into a groove free or maybe with a slotted bracket below the shelf to allow the shelf to expand/contract freely.

Have your say...
