Beautiful design and craftsmanship!

I just don’t know if I would have the patience to make all those templates… Then….. Build the table.

Looks fantastic, wish I could build something as well as this.

But… my OCD-sense is tingling. Sorry, but did you mess up those dowels/plugs on the bottom rail? ;)

haha, if your referring to the front right inside legs. Yes, yes i did. The pins were intended to be reversed. The downside to using templates. I forgot to flip the template when i did the right side. Unfortunately i think the fix would have looked worse than just leaving it as is, so i just rolled with it. You LJ’s don’t miss anything. One of the several things on this piece i would have liked to have done a better job on. I’m still fairly pleased with the piece as a whole for a first attempt.

Inspiring. Makes me want to get out there and make some beautiful furniture. Very well executed. I don’t see any mistakes, just design adjustments.

Thanks for sharing

I don’t know if I’m more impressed with the piece, or that somebody actually discovered a mistake on what looks like perfection to me. Beautiful work.

That’s a beauty. It made me wonder if there is any original G&G piece with a slatted base ?
