This is an unfinished table built for a repeat customer in New York. Like their previous bed, the customer wanted to finish it out. The customer sent me a pictures of something they liked as a starting point and some additional instructions. The original picture is the last one in the uploaded pictures.

It was completed in April 2011. The wood choice was Maple. It was a bar top height table. We really worked on getting the height correct with the customers bar stools. The legs were hand shaped on a band saw and a groove was cut at the top side of the leg. Flutes were cut into the apron. The top was a maple plywood panel surround by maple hardwood that was mitered in the corner. The seem between the hardwood and plywood had a slight radius put on the edges to accentuate the transition between them.
