I made this to hold the paperback books. the top overhangs enough to allow it to be against the wall. Curly maple is nice to work with and stained it with Behlen – Aniline dye (orange) and four coats of shellac and sanding between each coat. The legs were turned from mahogany and tapered to a small ball end.

Very nice design. Looks to fit perfectly in that specific corner. Finish looks flawless as well. Nice job.

Very cool… the legs are so thin, are they as fragile as they look?

Very nice design. The legs are just perfectly proportioned to make the whole table look like the table is about to float away.
Thanks.

Christopher, I need to learn from your elegant style. My biggest challenge is to avoid overbuilding. I need you to oversee my projects until I can build with more restraint regarding wood thickness.
