Topless Table

I decided to post this now because after I add the top, it would be tough to get a good shot of the base on its own. This is typical of my tables, a comfortable Stickley starting point that I build on. White oak legs, red oak stretchers, with a shot of walnut. The unfinished top ( Q/S white oak ) is on the bench next to it.

Looks very heave duty. Good luck with the top.

Nice affect with the different woods. Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

This is a solid looking table. I like the through tenons and the walnut dowels add nice details to the table.

I will enjoy seeing the finished product.

This is great. How are you going to attach the top? (I like those “figure eight” things)

The shot of walnut adds a lot to the base, it will look great after it’s done.

A very useful and strong table. Will look nice after the top is fixed. The storage space at the bottom is a special feature.

I’m fascinated by joinery and am wondering about the joints you used. The through tenons on the bottom stretchers are they affixed in any way to the cross members, or is it just the joints at the legs that are holding it all together.
