I saw this table in an issue of Fine Woodworking and decided to make it with scraps leftover from my workbench build and some free walnut from a friend. Working out the angles for the legs was a little tricky but a full-size drawing of the top helped transfer the joints the to the legs. The finish was 5 coats of an oil based polyurethane cut in-half with mineral spirits.

A very nice delicate piece. You should be very happy with your efforts. Lots of patience required for the amount of finishing.
