I ran across some pictures I did of a hallway table a while ago. Still like the design so I thought I’d share. The are no wood joints between the legs, apron and top. It’s all connected by welded stainless steel, either rods or plates

Beautiful design and craftsmanship Mike. Excuse me for asking but is one corner of the table top design curved in or is that just the camera? Either way it’s an excellent piece of woodworking and thanks for sharing it.

Very nice Mike. I really like the floating table top design. Good use of contrasting species too.

Hi Chip,

Thanks for the kind words. The front edge of the top does have a curve to it – it actually is a bit more curved than what appears in the picture.

That is a very nice contemporary table and I think that it is very attractive. I’m a little confused because of the way that you worded this about whether you just photographed the table or whether you actually made it. The photograph is very nice and if you made the table then great work.

Good point! Thanks for asking. I was a bit confusing. I designed and built the table when I was taking some woodworking classes at the Center for Creative Studies in Detroit several years ago.

Very nice.

I’d certainly put it in a prominent spot in our house!
