This table is the sister to the original “Opposing Arch Table” I built last year. I made most of the parts for both tables at the same time but finally got around to assembling and finishing this one. The last photo shows the two tables together.

Bees-wing Mahogany top, Birdseye Maple apron, Maple laminated arches, and Bubinga legs.

Here is the original table:

Awesome, to say the least. The top is beautiful, and contrasts very nicely with the arches. Well done!

Nicely executed. It’s a classic design and it translates well in both the coffee table and the side table.
