I built this splay-legged table in Garrett Hack’s “Precision with Hand Tools” class earlier this month at the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Maine. I finally had time to put on a shellac finish this weekend and here is the finished project. Cherry for the legs and aprons, walnut top and ebony banding. I learned a lot in the building of this table…it really boosted my confidence and sense of creativity as well—and the class was a phenomenal way to learn and improve hand tool techniques. I can’t wait to get started on my next project.

Very nice table, the tapered legs look great, nice long taper to a fine end. The walnut top is beautiful and the ebony banding is a nice highlight to the tables over all look…excellent work.

Great job on that beautiful table. Like the design especially the slim legs and the gorgeous top.

Its slim design reminds me a traditional Korean bookshelf, which we ususally refer to as a “four side open bookshelf”.
