That is a beautiful table. The top is special, but the support shows a lot of skill. I could do that in a weekend. That’s 5-12 on Friday evening, 12 hours on Saturday and maybe another 12 on Sunday!! Yeah, 30 some hours ought to do it. You must not have wife who steals your valuable time. Thanks for letting us see it.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

That is one nice table! And I agree, that must have been one long weekend!

I’d love to be able to find slabs of spalted maple like that around here in Florida without paying an arm and leg for shipping.

I can’t believe you made that in a weekend. Excellent work. The spalted maple top is amazing.

Thanks, everybody. By the way, with “weekend project” I was referring to the fact that I worked on it on weekends… not just one. The good thing about those projects is that it doesn’t matter how long it takes to finish them ;)

I’m having trouble seeing how this goes together/comes apart, the way the tenon wedges on the long stretcher are blocked by the legs. Maybe it doesn’t come apart?
