This was a quick and easy little table I made for a charity golf tournament. The biggest challenge was mortising for the aprons at 60 degrees to one another on a round and tapered leg. Like most challenges in woodworking, it just takes the right jig! I first saw the design for this table in Fine Woodworking. The top is made from Oregon big leaf quilted maple and the legs and apron are walnut. The finish on the top is a high gloss pre-catalyzed lacquer.

Jeff, i’ve been holding onto that FWW article till my skills catch up with it. Your execution is we’ll done, the top grain flows nicely. Well done.

You know what, you should try it, it’s not that hard! The turning is as easy as it gets, and the jig is not tough to construct. Good luck with it.

Any easy add to my favorites list. I love this wood combination and the style design. Simple and elemental for the ages.
