That is a great design. What method was used to attach the legs to the tabletop?

Neat! After laminating a fishing dip net frame recently, I’ve been contemplating the possibilities of laminations and you’ve inspired me to think about it harder!

Nice! I’m almost done with my first rocking horse, and I’ve been thinking about laminating the rockers for the second. You’ve inspired me.

The legs are attached to the top with trough tennons and a wedge. The inspiration for the legs came from the horns of an animal called Orix, that I had the good luck to see on one of my recent trips. A laminated leg was a better choice because the strengh of the legs was important, and there was less waste.

So nice, can’t get bored with that design. I too want to know if you made it for your home. I can see this being a loved item in your family for generations to come.

Zipsss: Nice seeing you and your wife today. I was showing my wife your table she liked it.

Great design.
