This is a split leg version of the table style I’ve been developing for several projects now. I’ve been playing with various leg styles and contrasting combinations of wood. It’s fun trying to evolve my own design. This is slightly figured quarter sawn bubinga and curly maple. About 30 hours involved with this one.

Nice design! I like the contrasting woods and it looks like it has good “bones”

Really nice. The “tenons” where the upper stretchers and legs meet are really interesting and I mean that in a very positive way. The angled profiles of the legs and the way the stretchers split into the leg sections immediately caught my eye. There is a lot of intriguing design in that joint. Great choice of woods and finish.

Very nice. Bubinga is hard to come by nowadays. Never seen legs joined that way. Very unique and attractive method. I’m sure people will see that and stop and stare / comment. Truly original. Tell us more about how you did those legs.

On this project you definitely have a leg up on everyone else

Love the split legs and the woods used make it stand out
