A friend brought me four antique table legs she had in storage for 30 years and asked me to build a desk with them. I think she was pleased with the result!

Great job building a table that matches the legs, but lets them shine.

Very nice. I’m curious about the legs: there seems to be a bit of a patina to them. Were they already finished, and you finished the rest of the project to match? Or did you finish them all simultaneously?

If she is not impressed thend she doesn’t know what she has now!
I think you captured the style of the legs in the desk.
