This table is made from genuine mahogany with a macassar ebony accent in the base. It is 42” wide, 68” long and 30” tall.

The top and base are all 1 1/2” thick. The stretcher is attached with a through wedged tenon to the base.

The original design is from Berkeley Mills in California.

That’s gorgeous Willie. Such a clean design and the joinery looks fantastic.

What are your thoughts on when breadboard ends are needed and when you can do without?

I have made several table tops of solid wood without breadboard ends. I feel that if the wood was dried correctly, glue joints are square and tight warping can be avoided.

You always have to take into consideration seasonal moisture changes and allow for wood movement in order to avoid the top from splitting or warping.

Breadboard ends not only serve a functional purpose but are also a design element.

Fine Woodworking and other periodicals can offer you more information on the purpose and construction of breadboard ends.

It’s always to valuable to get words of wisdom like this from people with direct experience, versus reading general guidelines, but there are simply SO MANY concepts to learn that I enjoy grabbing tips like this as they make themselves available like this. Wood acclimation is still something that I’m at the junior experience level.

Again, absolutely LOVE that table. Great work!

Beautiful execution on a graceful design. I really like the inlay and the wedged through tenons.

Great job on this table.

I love the little details like the ebony wedges. The mahogany has just an amazing warmth it really lights up nicely.
