Wifey saw a picture in a magazine and said “Can you make that?” I said “yes dear.” The top is 8/4, the skirt 6/4, and the legs are 5”” square. The top is secured with figure 8’s. Being solid oak, this son of a gun weighs a ton. Finished with Arm R Seal.

Wow, what an eye catcher, especially leg placement, while not a huge fan of oak as its done so often, this is absolutely one of the best looking oak tables i’ve ever seen, i may have to shamelessly copy this, perhaps not in oak, but the design is well done.
thanks for sharing

RJ, I’m not a big fan of oak either. I’m a walnut guy but it would have cost a fortune to make this table. My local hardwood store had a few 16” wide oak boards that were very reasonable so I went that route. Thanks for the kind words

Nice modern design. Is the top attached to the legs at all or is it only attached to the skirts?
