I got some good idea’s from you all on how to stabilize this table with the narrow legs. I took it apart from the last time you saw it and made some adjustments to it to true it up a bit. When you work with hand made curved wood, you never really have all the legs exactly alike, so some adjustment was needed where the legs attached to the skirt.
The table top tie downs finally arrived so this one is done with the steel tie downs. I can fix the others later or not, they are still very strongly attached.

So this is the table, not finished yet, and still dusty.

I think it works and it is very stable despite the narrowness, thanks to good precision joinery, lol.

looks good, and clever design.
Nice job on coming up with a workaround, from your original idea.

Hobby1, you cant see it in this small pic, but the undersides of the maple shelf are rounded over. I like the contrast but I’m open to changing it if enough people say the same thing.
But maybe I could round out the corners a bit. It will have to be done by hand seeing I glued in the screw covers already.

Russel sorry I just deleted the second part of my original post before I seen your reply
I didn’t want to seem critical.

Have your say...
