This project has two first for me, the table is my very first to ever build and the tapering of the legs is also a first for me, I used my Delta joiner to taper the legs, I believe it took around 10 passes on each side at a 1/16h cut per pass.
This is a small 3 legged display table, the table is from the center trunk of a spalted hackberry tree, the legs are made from walnut and tapered, I used pinned dowels for joinery, this table stretches 29 1/2” tall, 13” wide and 11 1/2” deep. It is finished in one coat of tung oil, three coats of wipe on poly and a final coat of paste wax.
This project was a thorn in my side as I knew what I wanted to make out of the slab which was the table but just didn’t know how to go about it since I’d never done a table before, it was the legs that had me troubled but once I found the time, I put research in and came up with a plan on how to construct the mounting for the legs under the table.
