this is a commissioned table I was asked to make from some friends of mine, all they told me was make it 30×30x30…don’t ya just love it, an open project, so the woods I choose were Pecan and Walnut and Heart pine for the legs, I did not fill in any nail holes and I used a semi gloss poly to finish it off, all of the joinery is mortise and tenon and they are pinned with 3/8 oak dowel, the top is held on with cleats underneath that are held in place by a 1/4 datto on all 4 sides. I always love making furniture, its probably the most fun for me, and boxes come in second. I want to thank you for looking at this project and will appreciate any and all comments.. grizzman

I don’t know grizzman! I think I’d be making my friend another and keeping that one. The wood in that looks perfect. VERY nice!!

Beautiful Table, Grizz.

That pecan has a lot of character. Looks like you brought out the best of the woods.

Grizz, That is a really nice table
You have to look twice to see it as the grain just catches
the eye. The “V” matches the grain pattern or knot. I like
the contrasting dowels.

Fantastic table Grizz! I love the top, it has so much character and the different woods look perfect together. Otherwise the whole thing looks wonderful.

It really shows you love making furniture. You have selected the perfect choice of woods and crafted a fine piece of furniture. The sides look spalted.
