This was one of the funnist peices I’ve done. Beleive it or not it was mostly built from scraps! The client said the magic words, “I just want something beautiful, the design is up to you.” That the secret to getting something great. The original design had turned legs, at the last second I was pull by the thought of cabrolets. This was some beautiful walnut and really cool Sapily mahogany. I put the tong oil on and the grain just exploded!

Good call on the legs. They look fantastic. Turned legs are so common.
I like the fact that you bowed the top frame rail with the bead.
Very nice.

A very different look with using the woods as you have done. A very one of a kind table. Good job!

Did you use some beading tool?
