I built this for our auction as well. The woods are Sapele and curly maple. I used sliding dove tails to attach the top to the maple and only glued the front of the joint to allow movement. I found I really needed practice doing sliding dovetail setup and more patience. All the other joints are held with screws. Overall though it was an easy and elegant build that was very popular at the auction.

Great looking table, I’m sure it demended a good price to win the auction. I just finished a bridal chest for Blondie out of sapele. Like the look of the grain flow.

Looks very nice…....a bit tippy but still very nice.
Well done.

thank you for the comments. I agree it looks less stable than I like too (Tippy) but it was made to be against a wall, so I think it will be OK. I plan to make another in the future and go slightly deeper as well as tapering the inside of the leg rather than the outside.

Snakeye – believe it or not it had a badge and a memorial carved in it till three days ago. It didn’t come out well and I removed it. So yes it had one.

That’s one classy hallway table. Like the floating design, great joinery and the pretty wood choices. Great job!
