The top is Cuban mahogany, the apron is curly maple, and the legs are plain maple. Finished it with an oil/poly finish. Kind of wish now that I tried BLO on the top to really darken it. I think it will redden over time anyhow though.

I’m really happy with the way it came out. I used plans to help lay out and build the jig to shape the legs.
Thanks for looking!

Great looking table and the soft curve at the bottom of the legs looks great.

Love the colors, the mahoghany with darken with time as well – I think NOT using the BLO was a good move.
The oil often helps the figure pop – so would have enhanced the curly figure on the aprons, but it also would darken the piece – and the oil continues to darken with time.
