This table is about 40’ long and 30” tall. This was my first real wood project and I am very happy with the results. Making this made me believe that I could actually build something nice enough to use!

Welcome to LJ’s that’s a great build. I like the taper on the bottom of the legs. I have one suggestion, having made several tables like this myself, you might want to round over the edges. It prevents them from getting dinged up and it leaves a nice looking edge. Just a suggestion, it did come out beautiful.

Very nice. The oak really pops out on the top.

Fantastic job! I really can’t believe this is your first “serious” piece – really great dimensions and finish.
Looks a LOT like the one I made a few years ago – mine, BTW, was certainly not my first project. Yours looks just as good or better!

Thank you all for the encouraging words!
Bob – it does look much like yours – but no dovetails in mine :) so you win!
Martin – thank you for the hint on the edge. I can see the danger of dings in a normal household!
