I am in the process of making a table from a 2’x6’ walnut slab. My wife and I have been kicking around some ideas for the legs and decided to make something in the style of George Nakashima. I am looking for some feedback from all of you.
I am thinking of using a contrasting wood for the legs and curious to know what you think. My current thought is to use tiger maple. One end of the table will have a “leg” in slab form. The other end of the table will contain two tapered legs that splay outward. Do you think that the use of tiger maple for the legs is a good choice? Do you have other suggestions?
Thanks for your help.
