Beautiful work I like how you bookmatched three sets of boards for the top and the grain pattern flows beautifully. The apronis srunning congrats on a unique design and execution. Walnut and Big Leaf Maple are difficult to harmonize but you pulled it off , Bravo. FordMike

The book matching really sets it off. How did you attach the rails to the angeled legs? Very well done.

That looks really nice. The 45degree rails are definitely different. Please post more pictures when you have applied the finish.

That bookmatching looks superb! Really lends some extra interest to the top.

How will this piece be finished?

Legs are let in to table top 3/8 in. then corner bolted together as shown using threaded inserts. Proved quite sturdy even without attaching top to rails, which I intend to do. Am considering some type of thinned varnish wipe on finish, am unsure and welcome comments. Table will be employed as working table for flower arrangements, exposed to dirt and possibly moisture.

Love your walnut tabletop, hate to think of potted plants on it. My gardener friend never uses ceramic trays under her potted plants because the moisture gets through; she uses thick plastic trays instead.
