Another salvage wood project. I found an oak counter top someone was throwing out and built this table from it. Accent material is some left over mahogany.

Beautiful table! I know with all that oak it is very heavy and solid! Nice work!

Nice craftsmanship… how did you attach the stretcher? And the tabletop?

The stretcher is mortise and tenon, the top has 2 dowels just off center and figure 8 fasteners on the other ends to allow for movement.
