A relative needed a table that was a particular size and ask me to make it. Its solid cherry, 5 glued up boards for each leg then beveled on band saw and cleaned up on the jointer. The top is glued up then I ripped off the sides and edge and then and re-glued for a thicker look. Used a table top router bit. The legs are blocked in top and bottom using T-88 (System 3 product) epoxy. 14 #10 1 1/4 inch brass screws hold the top on. I ended up with 4 pretty heavy coats off pre cat lacquer and hand waxed with 0000 steel wool.
