This is a table I designed for my Mom for her Birthday. It is made of cherry and maple. Mortise and tenon joinery with maple pegs. The angled “socks” are a fix because I found it to be too short initially. The curved strip in the top is something new for me and I will likely use it again. Got the idea from a FWW #233 by Scott Lewis on cutting boards. This is my second hall table and I am still searching for the design that is just right. It is finished with a blonde shellac and wax. Thoughts and comments are appreciated. Thanks for reading.

Really nice build. Never would have known about the fix if you hadn’t told us.
