New table. I used curly maple for the top and walnut for the edge banding. The legs are soft maple. I used linseed oil / Polyurethane for a finish.

Very nice work Paul. You didn’t mention the species of wood you used or the finish. Sorry if I’ asking too many questions but the contrast in woods is wonderful.

Paul, how did you join the boards of the tabletop together? Also, how did you attach the edge banding?

Nice table.

Very nice looking. I am trying to understand how some people seem to get away with designs like this, while others have problems with wood movement. Does your design allow any flexibility on the ends where grain is perpendicular? I am not trying to criticize, this is something I don’t fully understand.
