This piece started out as a just the top as a study/experiment for a dining table (yet to be built). The top set around in my shop for a quite some time before I decided to do something with it and add legs – make it an actual piece of furniture.
I went back and forth a couple of times on whether I actually like the base/rail structure. I brought it in the house and set it up in the living room – then lived with it for a couple of weeks and decided I like it.
I learned a lot from this piece.

Beautiful piece Darrell! I think a similar design top would look great as a coffee table as well. Nicely done as always!

Well I’m glad you committed to finishing the piece. That top is way too pretty to be kicking around the shop.
I like the extra wide splines and double aprons.
Great piece.

Outstanding design and incredible G&G details! It’s true work of art. I bet it will be in some museum some 100-200 years in future.
