I bought these maple boards on Craigslist and had no idea they would look this beautiful. I had the boards and someone asked for a tv stand and I jumped on the opportunity to do a waterfall edge with these. I’m glad I did! They turned out beautifully!
The last picture is my proof that you absolutely can always use more clamps. I needed more and I needed different types than I had. Still turns out nice.

That is beautiful! Congrats.

How did you cut a 45 degree angle that wide on that board so accurately?

It’s great work, Logan. How did you strengthen the mitered corners in such a large piece?
The waterfall effect is terrific. Thanks for sharing.

Hi all – thanks for checking out the piece and liking it as much as I do!

Chris and BigMig – to cut the 45 I used my newly purchased Makita track saw. It was not as accurate as I had hoped (one side was 45 degrees and the other was 40ish), but after some shims and slight trimming, plus very little sanding, I got the angles were I needed. I also have a domino that I bought last year and I used those to strengthen the joints. It is solid – no wiggle at all.

Nice. I have plans for one in the works. More of an entry hall table. I am hoping to avoid a stretcher to support the legs (or sides) lateral movement.. A design similar to yours with out the bottom and dividers you have. Would you think that would work or there will be too much movement to keep the legs stable?

I have build the slide for the 45 using phenolic plastic to give the thickest 45 deg cut I can make with my Delta 10” saw. I can get close to 45 on a 2” thick slab. Your thoughts on construction and use of a stretcher would be valued.

I’ve only built this with a stretcher, so I have no idea how strong it would be without one. I like your plans for the cut.l – it sounds like a great way to cut it. How will you reinforce the joint? I think it will make a difference on the strength of the table without a stretcher.
Good luck
