I started this table several weeks ago. It is my first large project using the Legacy Ornamental Mill. (I plan on writing a review of this tool/machine soon, but I wanted to get a little more use before hand.) This is a Communion Table (obviously) for a local church (commissioned no less, wow). Built with quarter and rift sawn white oak. The left and right legs have a counter rotating rope spirals. I also used the Legacy to cut the mortises in the legs. The “carved” lettering is routed in after the edges are scored with various carving chisels.

Very nice looking. That legacy does come in handy when you need it, huh?

That is a really nice looking table – I like the legs, the finish and the carving is not too shabby either. Good job.

Dock this is a gorgeous table. The turnings really set this piece apart.

How did you finish it?
