This is the second piece of furniture that i have made so far. I didn’t glue the table top because I still don’t have the right equipment but everything else was made exclusively with hand tools: hand saw, chisels, and a couple of handplanes. Made from Baltic oak and finished with a couple coats of bees wax+linseed oil.

Very cool table surface. If you didn’t glue it, how did you a) join the top pieces to each other and b) join that to the frame?

Sorry for my english. You misunderstood. I ordered the table top from somewhere else, it was glued from little pieces of oak. I attached the table top to the frame with self drive screws.

Ahhh Ok, I see. Well it looks like you did a good job at blending the two together.

That’s awesome-I really, really like this! Have you thought of chamfering the edges of the tabletop? I think that would really accentuate the “lightness” of this piece.

Actually they are chamfered but just a couple of mm. I agree it would look especially light if I would have done more.
