Love wood in its natural shape format. Not sure if it would look better with a redish finish on the gray side, it’s worth experimenting.

Fantastic style. I like the way the grey wood at the edges flows right into the endgrain grey of the legs.

That’s a great looking table. I really like how all of the outside edges roll down and the legs match that same rounded look. What kind of joinery did you use?

Thank´s for everybody, usually I don´t prefer pine much but when it´s old enought it ok. Joinery is just made with birch plugs.
