Elegant Small Splayed Leg Table

The legs and the aprons are red oak and the tabletop is white oak. Trim strips of walnut embellish the aprons.

The underside of the tabletop has been beveled at the tablesaw. The legs and the aprons have been dovetailed at the router table with a 3/8’’ dovetail bit. The aprons are cut at a 4° angle at both ends.

The legs are tapered on two sides, the same as the dovetail slots.

I glued two sides at once, spreading glue only in the dovetailed slots to minimize squezze out.

Here it is after three coats of wipe-on polyurethane.

All details and more pictures added on my blog.

Best,

Serge

I missed this post because the table is not made of MDF!

Nice addition to whoever is the user of this table.

The splayed legs are a nice addition to this table. The concept of splayed legs can go on a lot of designs if you apply it correctly as I think you did .
I have just finished watching a video for drawing splayed legs in SketchUp and wondered how useful it would be and you showed me how to apply it
The tutorial is here and He's a LJ useful in future projects

Thanks for sharing Walt

Thank you guys, and particularly Walt for the link to the tutorial. We’re a team now, aren’t we?

@ChuckM: Thin splayed leg + MDF = trouble!

Serge
