I built a pair of these. I’m hoping to sell them to pay for some of my shop equipment. It will make my wife very happy!

You have built some very nice tables. I like the legs. What type of wood did you use?

Thanks so much to all! Yes Jen I did turn the legs. They are turned with a method called converging axis. I learned it from a book by Norman Vandall. The wood is figured soft maple. I get it from a lumber supply Maine Coast Lumber right up the street. They let me go through the bins and I can usually find some decent figured. I bring my block plane to check the rough sawn. What a bargain $2.15 a bf. Mortise and tenon joinery,hand planed tops then hand scraped. The finish is General water dye Vintage Cherry,then 4 coats of rubbing varnish Minwax Antique Oil Finish. About 100 hours for 2 tables. Guess I won’t get rich doing this. Hope to get $600 for the pair. Thanks again everyone for all the nice comments. I’m humbled.

Great job on these.
It’s pretty tough to get rich doing this kind of work. Believe me, I know.
