Here’s my first attempt at a table. The side and top are curly maple, the legs are cherry.

Nice lite look with those gently tapered legs.
Welcome to LJ’s, I’m looking forward to your next post.
FWIW, alot of hall tables like this have the table top edges relieved with a slight bevel to make them lighter to the eye.
Great build and good wood choices.

Looks great! I need to build me one of those!

Looks like a 2 beverage project—-might take me a few more… I’m still pretty new at this :)

Keep ‘em coming.

Very nice table, good job on the craftsmanship.

A great first project to post here that appears to be well constructed and nicely finished. How did you taper the legs (tablesaw, jointer, etc.)? I like your wood combination here.

Welcome to LumberJocks! I’ll be curious to see your next project.

Thanks everyone, the top does have a round over routed on it. Those are just crappy cell pics…. The legs were made on the table saw with a tapered jig I made…

Welcome. Two of my favorite species of wood, combined! What dimension of lumber did you start with? 4/4 and 8/4? How deep (wide) is that top board? GrumpyMike – if you are still following, I am curious about your comment. Beveled inward, from top surface to bottom of board on all four sides? What approximate degree would be acceptable? I have one of these builds in my future.
