very nice, love the legs. I’ve been looking at similar designs for some future tables.

My wife has been looking for the perfect table for months. I knew when I saw this she would fall in love, and I was right on the money! Could you comment on the finish and maybe post a few more pictures for those like me interested in doing something similar? Thanks in advance.
