This was a combination of a few items designs, all merged together. I have long admired the Stickley octagonal table. I also wanted to try these long keys where I saw on an antique piece, giving a design to the legs, which otherwise might need some artful work on them.

Very nice effect with the long keys on the legs. Usually I see this kind of a table with some kind of cutout. This makes the legs much more striking. This is yet another one going into my favorites.

Very nice Phil ,like you said this has a few styles incorporated in it,it has a Roycroft feel to it besides the obvious Stickley design. A wonderful build.

This is a great looking table. I really like the long tenon wedges. Is it a dry fit, or are they glued in place?
