Love the innovation. Beautiful materials. Wonderful design. Excellent execution.
I have been on and off this site all day. It is becoming addictive. Soon, I’ll have no time to gawk and comment, but when I get past this big job I have going, I’m going to gear up for my first serious fine woodworking project.
It won’t be for the wife, or for a client. Just for me.

Great looking table. I like the detail on the front that supports the top. And the flair on the legs look great.

It’s a really nice piece, well executed! Not sure I like the alternating woods of the bottom shelf though. In fact, I would probably do away with the shelf and stretchers entirely. I think this would help it decide what it wants to be…either full fledged arts and crafts or more modern piece with a floating top.
Please don’t take that hyper-critically…it’s more of a personal taste thing.

I like the way you blend styles with different woods to create unique designs. Very good workmanship too.
I agree that the combo of maple and a nice black walnut is always striking.
Thanks for sharing.

Thanks all, it was fun to build.
Cosmicsniper—I agree about the bottom shelf. I’m disappointed how that turned out because it looks so busy, but I had committed myself to it and by the time I decided I didn’t like it, it was too late. Other than that I really like how it turned out.

Great looking hall table, Scott! I like how you combined several elements to make this table look great.
And just remember, if you aren’t completely satisfied with the way this one turned out, you can always make another one. One of the many benefits of making your own furniture!

Scott – nice table. I definitely like the contrast. I have a question for you on the cloud lift details. How did you come up with the proportions? The front and back faces look amazing. However, the sides seem a bit stubby. I run into that problem a lot with proportions when I am doing cloud lift details. It seems like the slightest thing makes or breaks the look. Do you have a proportion between the inside and outside radius? Same question for the curved rise. Oh and I just noticed the curved tapers on the legs – very nice touch.
