Maple with a cherry stretcher. Table legs are blind mortise and tenon into the top (hopefully I’m using the right terminology). Stretcher is mortise and tenon through with ebony wedges. There was some spalting on one leg and when I wedged the stretcher I produced a slight crack. Super glue and tight clamping fixed that but I learned a little something. The finish is from a Fine Woodworking article. “Tabletop Finish With a Hand-Rubbed Feel” and I would definitely use this technique again.
