I did this table a while ago and just realized that I had not posted this project here.
As you can see, this is a very simple design. My objective is show off the natural beauty in the wood and I think I succeeded in doing that here.
Bubinga may be my favorite wood. However, it is a little pricy. I spent about $100 on this table top.
I kept the frame very simple and made it with maple.
This is a benchmark table for me. In every previous table I had tapered the legs. This is the first table I made with straight legs. I didn’t do that to make my work easier. I just wanted that look. Since doing this table I have made several more with solid straight legs.
My style has emerged to pieces with straight simple lines and a look of bulkiness. This table was my first that embraced that concept.
FYI – I have the material for a waterfall bubinga bed. That is next on the project list. The challenge will be finding a workspace in my shop that is bid enough for a king size bed. I think I can build it in 4 distinct pieces and assemble it in the bedroom.
