This was my first furniture project. I’m 56 and found a ton of guidance from the internet. Thanks to places like this I gave it a shot. It’s far from perfect, but has kindle the woodworking fire in me! Hope to do many more.

I would be very proud if that was my first project. Super job.
Thanks for showing.

Quite a nice design and looks very well made too, a first to be proud of. From a practical standpoint, it might benefit from having legs or hidden casters, but only if it wouldn’t ruin the looks of it. Not a criticism, just an observation.

That is a pretty nice looking table. I like the design, quite cool looking. How did you curve the legs?

Very cool! Woodworking is a great retirement past time. Start pulling your shop together!

Not sure how to answer everyone.THUS.

Thanks everyone for the comments.
Woodbridge – you may not believe this, but the curved legs are numerous MDF boards cut with a jig saw. Then glued together with many clamps. Then sanded, veneered, stained, and protection with polyurethane.
I appreciate all the feedback and hope to have a real hobby shop within a year. Maybe then, I can learn how to bend boards and vacuum veneer.

Your first furniture project ... yeah, sure, it looks extremely good … elegant lines, good balance, and good workmanship!
Where do you go from here!

Old novice…All my old woodwork projects were for shop or in closets. Nothing to display!
