I made this table for my wife to replace an old, round, particleboard table with a glass top. It had 3 rickety, screw in legs. This has 4 legs of Lyptus that are mortised into the apron. The angles for the mortises and tenons on the round edge was tricky, but it worked. Nice to have a mortiser that tilts! I used a tapering jig for the table saw to make the legs. The aprons are also Bubinga- her favorite wood. Tung Oil finish.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

A unique table and the wood-grains are beautiful. Love the design of this….seemless!

Absolutely beautiful! Those angled M/T joints would have baffled me. Is that redwood on the vanity behind the table? My whole bathroom is redwood with sapwood.

Andy, the tub is surrounded by Aromatic Cedar. The whole bathroom, except for the window, was trimmed in this wood. The desire (my wife’s) for a semi-half round table led me to play with the angles for the supports. It was sort of fun! The top is 3 pieces edge glued together. The grain of the Bubinga cooperated in hiding the glue lines. My wife likes it.

Of course your wife loves it! It is beautiful and you made it! I wondered if that was red cedar but it is amazing how much it looks like my redwood with the sapwood. Mine is a little more brownish red. Your glue lines are invisable from here!
