This table became the deer leg table after gazing at the prototype. I just couldnt get away from that feel. It is a hickory top with wenge edging, and the legs and rails underneath are 8/4 mahogany with wenge caps. The top was booked but not matched and is doweled and glued to the rails. The braces on the legs are for books, not strength since it is not needed. Stumpy could do the jig on this table. The top is only 14 by 20” and the table weighs about 3000#.
Thanks for looking! ;-J

I really don’t know what I like more the style/design or the woods used it striking on all accounts. Thanks for posting great work…BC

I like the table. For some reason, the top reminds me of a deer tail.

A novel way to attach a top….still worried about wood expansion separating the edging, but overall cool design.

JG THANKS. I AM WITH YOU ON THE EXPANION ISSUE. WHEN DOING THIS IN THE FUTURE I WLL PLACE BEAMS ACROSS THE UNDER SIDE LARGE LIKE THE RAILS THAT ARE THERE ALREADY, THEN DO LIGHT WEIGHT BREADBOARD ENDS. THE TOP ALSO HAS SIX DOWELMAX 3/8” IN THE EDGES. OUR CLIMATE HERE TENDS TO MAKE US WORRY LESS ABOUT EXPANSION THAN WE SHOULD. ONE NICE THING IS THAT THERE IS NOTHING STOPPING ME FROM STILL MODIFYING IT. ;-J

Joe,

Both a nice and interesting piece you’ve put together here. I like the legs, as well as the combination of wood and the bookmatched top.
