Funky Hard Maple & Walnut Top. Clear Hard Maple legs (toothpick anyone?) that bolt on & off for transport. Walnut butterflies. Oak Bench. I delivered this table & took a bunch of pics. When I got home only these 3 came out. Maybe better pics later.

These are gorgeous. I love the grain and coloring of the table. That, coupled with the natural edge, gives is a lot of character.

Thanks for the post. I really enjoy seeing your work.

Great table! I really like the natural look (I do rustic stuff…). What are the pegs in the end of the top and what design did you use for the bench supports?

Thanks to all! The table has a skirt or apron made of 1” oak. The pegs are plugs hiding the 3” screws that have the ends of the table fastened to the apron. The legs of the bench are a semi nakashimic design (george nakashima) I have poured over, over 100’s of photos of his pieces, seen & felt around 20. So I came a couple inches in on each leg & a couple inches up in the center & cut out the piece to form the legs.
