A truly amazing piece!
I have never seen this type of splayed-wood joint before – it utterly cool!
What I can’t figure out is how you keep the wood from splitting further in the future after the piece is done.
And you are correct – I think darker wood for the uprights would have been better, but the customer is always correct! :-)
Thanks for posting this – a great build!

Beautiful Joinery. Don’t apologize for making it to suit the customer. They were lucky to find a craftsman who could complete their vision.

As other have said The joinery IS beautiful. But I’m wondering … are people still using rotary dial phones? LOL

Wow. This little table is a “joinery clinic”! The leg joints remind me of Roy Underhill’s “Mystery Mallet” episode. Awesome skills!

Es un trabajo interesante. Un alarde de técnicas y buen hacer tradicinales. Si me permites una observación sin menosprecio de ningún aspecto de tu trabajo, sino por exponer otro enfoque que tal vez no tenga más valor que el de ser diferente: cuando diseño hago tengo en cuenta el número de elementos que se pueden enumerar a simple vista en el objeto. Luego procuro ajustarlos y coordinarlos como un todo. Si te interesa hablar del tema, estaré encantado.

Your home page says that you are a trainee. I don’t think so. Who came up that design?? Great skills….........
