A table I built last spring, It is of Ami. Cherry and from maple.

The legs are curved on two sides and beveled two sided as well on the oppisite sides of the curves. Thereis a drawer guided with a wood maple frame with classic style.

The pic pretty much says it all a simple table that I think is elegant!

The top is veneered and cut at a 15 degree angle around the edges Finish is hard wax oil mix

I agree with Charlie, great legs, and I am a leg man…

Nicholas, This is a really nice table. Cherry and maple are my favorite wood combination so this one naturally got my attention. Beveling the top is a nice idea and the legs really draw your eye when looking at the piece.

Well done.
