Here it is delivered and installed. These are some of the finished pics at the customer’s home. This project took me about 3 1/2 months to complete. It was actually a lot harder to make than I thought. Bread board ends and pull out extension support were a bit of a challenge. They look so easy when you “read the article”.

Beautiful Steve, like swodaddy above I really like the contrast in the legs and the finish.

Absolutely gorgeous. I’m building allot of small projects right now to learn and improve my techniques, but someday I hope to be able to build some beautiful furniture like this.

At the size that table already is, did they really need the That is a very impressive table, very elegant but rustic at the same time. I like it!
