What a great blend of artistic joinery. Your table is warm and rich looking. Thanks for sharing.

Scott, I like this piece a lot. Looks like you’ve finally decided to add a 4th leg! Is this an individual piece, or will it become a set? Maloof-inspired pieces seem to look good done in most any wood, but I especially like black walnut pieces… something about the flow of the grain, the color, and the contours all works for my tastes.

Looks great. I have never tried Maloof style stuff, no where near that level yet, but this looks like it would be perfect for someone who wanted to try it for the first time. The high backs and long curvy legs on those rockers look very intimidating to someone like me.
