She stands a little tall, 39”, but I think she’ll do.

8/4 walnut top with malachite (I think) inlay. Its green.

Maple bottom, and yes I checked this time, it’s maple.

Bent wood is oak and walnut and I’ve had it laying around for a year.

Danish oil, golden oak.

The top isnt attached yet.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Charles. I wanted to try something traditional, seeing I am making about 7 or 8 of these tables and I want them all to be variations of my style.

I like the addition of the curves, that really adds something special to this project.

Great work. I remember seeing its earlier form, and this definitely sells it.

Are you going to offset the top when you attach it? I think it takes away from the look of the table.

mds2, no, I will just put it on like it’s shown, only straight. I plan to glue all these tops on because I just cant penetrate this walnut. If it falls over the top will just come apart that way instead of busting the whole piece.

Russ, I certainly like the look better than what you posted, what a day or two ago. That said, there is still something….. not that I necessarily ‘don’t like’ more of something that is not right. I think it is the thickness of the top. It needs a break or be thinner or…..I don’t really know. At first I thought an inlay on the side grain, something thin, just to break the thickness up a bit. Please do not take me wrong, all of MY taste is in my mouth. My eye for design is very lacking. Just trying to help. FWIW.

jumbojack, I fell the same way, but there is no rush. I may run it through my joiner and give the corner an angle.

Howdy, I have to side with everyone who likes the bentwood between the sides. Very nice design!

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

that is a nice looking piece of walnut. The curves are very nice on the legs as well. Nice job!
