About two years ago, I bought 200 bf of cherry from one Amish sawmill. While planing all board, I found one particular board, it’s a curly cherry. There was only one curly cherry, so had to just store it until I have an idea of what to make. Now it becomes a small coffee table wrapped with maple.
Legs are positioned 45 degree to the apron. I used Festool’s Domino joinery for the first time.
It makes real storng joint and very easy to make.

That is a very neat way to do the legs. I really like the design and proportions. Great job!
