Table no finish on it yet. Its Walnut with mitered double splined joints. Curly maple top floating with two steel rods holding it up. Basically the “side aprons” are steel rods if that makes sense. Ill take new pictures when i get some oil on it.

thanks everyone. Im going to have some real photos taken after i add the finish. Most likely boiled linseed oil with 4 or 5 coats of waterlox on top.

Just wanted to say this is a beautiful piece. It begs to be touched even without the finish. Any pictures with the finish yet?

I like the design very much. The effect is very nice. My instincts are often to keep adding to something, a bevel here, round over an edge add some curved elements, often for no good reason. This is a perfect example of how a clean design is a better design. I have read that linseed oil makes curly maple pop but I have yet to try it. I do wonder about the mitered joints at the top. I have never used splined joints but it does look like a lot of stress on those joints.

New here and not sure how long ago this way posted, but it is fantastic. I really dig the simplicity. I guess I am a simple guy, but your table is just pleasing to the eye (mine anyway). If you ever got some finish on it, I would like to see an updated photo.
nice work!
