First attempt at a dining table. The top is cherry on the outside and curly maple in the middle. There are a few knots but overall, it turned out fairly nice. The legs are from Etsy and are metal due to the weight of the table (it’s a full 2 inches thick and 27.5 * 45 inches)

Really like the combo of the maple and cherry! Looks great. What finish did you use?

Beautiful top! Is the cherry actually curly or is that shadows of the mini blinds?

It’s just the shadows. Curly cherry would’ve looked good though.
