Completed this table last year, but finally getting around to getting some good photography done. Elegant cherry and tiger maple occasional table with gracefully curved cherry legs and shop sawn veneered top.

I love your design – very Krenovian.
Are the legs splayed outwards or is that an optical illusion?

Thanks for sharing.

Elegant design and execution ! Simple clean lines make this a piece that can go with almost any decor.

The legs are curved out of a 1 3/4” billet so the inside tips of the top and bottom are in the same plane perpendicular to the floor, but the curvature created angled joints for all the rails.

Really nice piece. Light and “airy”. Obviously you enjoyed the grain in the rails, and rightly so. Fantastic job on the curved legs.

Looks like simple but that’s a great example of art!

Very nice table!

I’ve made “curved on 2 sides” legs before, and they’re a lot of work. I kept the inside edges straight though, to keep the joinery simpler. Cheating, though, compared to your legs!
