First time attempting to carve claw feet. I wanted to integrate them with a midcentury design.

The carving is great. I don’t think the top does the carvings a favor.
I don’t think it has enough pop, nor the right coloring. A little too washed out.

So nice work on the carvings, but not my taste for the top.

But that’s what makes everyone’s opinion, just an opinion.

Just gorgeous.The top reminds me of an old butcher’s block and the legs are perfect.I love how the apron has that curve cut into it to give the floating top look.Where did you get such a wide piece for the top,looks like pine?

Impressive and nicely done! Would love to see close ups of your B&C feet, and know your source for learning.
