Finished making this Entry table of Wenge and Sapele..probably my favorite combination of woods. This is the second time I have made this general design, but i changed the way I tapered the legs. Everything fits through the 13” planer. Its 30” tall, 14” wide and 46” long. The top is narrower than the width of the legs at 12.75 inches wide. The Purple European Beech bowl just seemed to go so nicely that I believe I found a permanent home for it.

Fine looking table, Jamie. Love the floating top. Great finish … Kudos!

Its an original design I came up with it a few months ago. Earlier last year, it’s kind of an extension of that design. I wanted to get all the parts, including the top through a 13 inch planer, be able to use my domino joiner, and be able to reproduce it easily in about a weekend. Peanut Butter and Jelly is a perfect analogy! I like the style points! Thanks!!

First, thats gorgeous

Second, I’m not a leg man. Haha. But how to you taper legs like this? Do you use a spoke shave or a bandsaw or just a taper jig on a table saw?

Tablesaw tapering jig made of 1/2” plywood for the base. My blade raises to 3 inches of total table height..so subtracting the plywood I can taper up to nearly 2.5 inches. But really, 2.25 is the maximum clean cut I can make through leg stock.
