Now they wish end tables to replace that thing in the back of picture #4. :)

Nice table! I like how the legs sit proud above the table top.

Where did you get the 12/4 cherry for the legs? A coworker of mine asked for my help in sourcing some material that size. Im in the St. Louis MO area and really cant find anything locally without selling my soul. At the moment we are thinking of ordering from http://www.bellforestproducts.com

The legs are glue-ups. No way was I going spend 30% of the tables budget on just the legs. I just couldn’t justify it.

Thanks, thats good to know… I sent him the link to your project, which I think looks great, even with the glue up. He is set on building a heirloom piece and really doesnt want to piece it together. I just cant believe how hard it is these days to get bigger rough lumber.

I was considering the option of a mitered box… his project wouldnt show the top or the bottom of the legs. This way you wouldnt see any edge joints, they should be invisible on the corners.

Beautiful job. Love the A&C look. How did you make the legs? Laminate 3 pieces of 4/4? miter 4 planks around a core? something else?

Thanks John, legs are a flat glue-up. And if you’ve enough clamps, they come out great.

Beauiful table, I couldn’t afford the curley cherry, but I’m in the process of making one for me with regular cherry. Would you mind sharing the dimensions for the spokes? They appear to be about 3/4” but I’m not sure, thanks Ed

Nice job. I may use the same wood and stain for a table I want to do.
