That is a nice design. Not sure how you accomplished the curved legs?

Great design, I really like it. Do you have more pictures and details on how you achieved those curved legs?

I built the legs by cutting the curves out of cyprus. Do to the softness of the cyprus i backed the curves with plywood curves. I routed 3/8 channels on the inside of the curved legs. joined the curved legs with 1 by 2 by 9inch boards to hold each side of the legs together. then laid in barrel or flex ply wood in the groves making the leg look like one solid bent piece of wood. I laminated cyprus on the barrel wood to finish the solid look. note the table was assembled pryer to the inside curve being barrel wooded and laminent. hiding all hard wear inside legs forever. makes for a sleek table. Yes there is a lot more to this table but this is just a rough idea of how it was built. building furniture for the past 31 years. Every craft is a new learning experience. I am always looking for tips suggestions and just great conversation. thank you for your comments and kind words. Captain

Nicely done and very interesting construction. By coincidence we shipped a similar table out of our shop this week. Ours was made over a form in a vacuum bag and was built up out of six continuous layers per side – 2 flex ply, 2 kerf ply and 2 covers of maple veneer. Top and base are 1 1/2” mdf with solid maple edging. A faux parchment finish was done with a high gloss lacquer top coat.
Yours is much warmer looking and very inviting, real wood too!
