That’s a really nice looking table—I think the asymmetry of the patter adds to it’s character. Also love the breadboard ends and pegs… all in all, that is a beautiful table, nicely done!

I am just now designing a coffee table for my daughter. I have never built one.
I think yours is super in design and craftsmanship.

what a grand table you have made, i love the mixture of cherry and walnut, the brass is a great addition, i think your design is spot on also, the walnut sure does add a eye catching effect..i made a really large red cedar table, and did the same thing, i put walnut all around the outside edges for the protection…thanks for sharing your great table, it looks great in your home…grizz

Your right about the contrast, it is very pleasing to look at. Great piece!

I love this table. In particular, the design has clean simple lines with reserved detail. The species mix is not overbearing, and the asymmetry in the top is a nice touch.

Nice job … if I were to change one thing, I think I would taper the inside of the legs a bit for a lighter look, but that’s not really a criticism … just a personal preference.

Thank you all for your kind words and comments. I began the design of this project with the inclusion of drawers, tapered legs, and splines for the breadboard ends. As the design progressed I simplified, most notably adding the walnut to the sides of the laminated cherry legs to cover that seam. I only had 6/4 stock there so I had to adapt.
When I create the matching end tables I’ll include drawers and tapered legs.
I have been taking a lot more time in the design phase of projects. It really helps to work out these details in order to save time and minimize mistakes when the build comes.

Great table, a fine design and build…
One question: since the photo was taken has the cherry darkened? I find the shade of cherry in the photo the perfect tone in contrast to the walnut – but my cherry seems deeper after a year and would not seem to contract as nicely with the walnut.
Did you use anything besides clear finish? Has the cherry darkened appreciably since the photo?
Thanks Tucker, great job.

Inspiring. Thanks. I just can’t get over how lovely the wood is. The fact it’s local just makes it magic.
