NICE job of salvage and best use. Inspiring, even. I’ve got a stack of salvaged redwood just waiting to become something like your table.

Don

the Arrows are the red/white/green for the Rails to the Legs.

The dots are just 1/2” Dowels, routed in the walnut strips the drilled holes for the dowel(dots)

Looks really neat. I have been meaning to make a small table like this and you have inspired me to get started on one soon.

Nice work.

That’s a beautiful table. The border around the table top really sets it off. Well Done!
