This one was little bit of chalange with the tapered walnut sides and joinery. I must say it was great experience to build piece of art like that

The shadowing mad it look like it was floating off the ground at first… I’m afraid it took me too long to notice it wasn’t >.< Well done with the table :)

Looks really wonderful. I love walnut, and I am thinking of trying something similar. What did you use for joinery? Mortise and tenons? Angled? Would love to see some shots of it.

yeah it is mortise and tenons. That top piece is 1 1/2” thick Hickory so the mortise is only 1” deep cut.
If I can give you some recommendations, I would definetely do 2” – 2 1/2” thick stock on top.
In my opinion the joint would be probably much stronger , but there is a saying people learn by mistakes and this one was mine. Good luck with you project KENSTONGE
