This is my first table. I widdled legs from 4×4 pine boards to give them a tapered look.

Good job, looks great. I hope you attached the top and fastened the band edging on the ends in a fashion that won’t cause the top to split from expansion and contraction over time. My first creation was a coffee table and 2 end tables and I made tops that looked identical to what you’ve made. Over time all three of them split down the middle from being in dry heat during the winter, and the splits would swell shut in the summer. I wasn’t a happy beginning woodworker.

Nice looking table, but hard to see the legs in that shadow.

Nice job with the edge joining on the top. Also, how’d you finish it? It looks really good.

Thanks everyone! I know the shadow really covers up the legs (legs are stained a touch darker). I am new to this site and will add more photos. I am a beginner and certainly “getting my feet wet”. This project is almost completely joined by the “Kreg jig”. The speed at which it came together was fast. I hope that it doesn’t fall apart fast! (^^why me) This table will definitely be tested. I am slowly acquiring more tools and work space. I intend to get into more traditional woodworking.

More projects to come; cutting boards on the way and and a gun rack/full bobcat mount combo.
