Welcome to the forum. It is a real nice looking table. I really like the design of the butcher block it really stands out.

That is a great coffee table, good choice of woods and excellent execution of the project.

i turned dowels on the tops of all four legs then drilled corresponding holes or mortises and dropped the leg assembly in. i wanted to stay away from using a stretcher so this is what i came up with. thanks for all the comments. jury by peers are always the most helpful.
