I designed this set of three end tables for my daughter-in-law. Walnut cabriole legs, slightly taller than the top but not touching. Koa oval inlay. Mortise and tenon joinery. Finished in hand rubbed semi-gloss polyurethane. I would call the style modern with a nod to traditional.

Excellent attention to detail, from the grain orientation, to design and execution, to the cleanly finished product. Nice job!

Different, and I like that.

SWEET! I love the style blend. Its like in a Sci Fi movie when people live primitive lives but have light sabers. The is a really cool design. Now lets talk about how you attached the top.
