I am in the process of designing a new coffee table for our front room. The inspiration for the design comes from Kaleo’s “Wrapped Table”.
My plan is to have the top made from hickory and be about 30”x48”, with the legs being either ash or poplar died black, offsetting the hickory. The wrapped legs I’m planning will be 3/4” x 3” wide and be joined with finger joints. I have the design basically complete, but am wondering how stable the table will be? With the top being solid wood, I need to allow it to move as required with humidity changes. If I provide slotted holes in the leg assembly, screwed to the table top, do you think that this will provide enough stability to the table?
