this table is made of cherry with sliding dove tails on the legs to the frame and the legs were all carved by hand with files and rasps.

All of your rasping and filing must have been a real work out but the end results look great!
Nice Job!

it sure was but I need to clarify I cut the ruff shape with the band saw first but yes it took about a day per leg because of my reconstructed shoulder..
