Great work. What did you use to carve out the slots that hold the table to the base?

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the feedback. I used a wood conditioner before putting a dark walnut stain on it. I then used a wipe on poly for the finish on the top. I did 5 or 6 coats to get the shine. The round legs pieces are laminated pieces with the miter joints offset. glued it up to the rough size i wanted and then after plaining to thickness I attached them to a board and used my router like a compass to cut the arc.
The slots for the top attachment i cut with a router bit used to cut stile panel groves. I cut them about 1/2 inch longer then the cleat and then squared them out with a chisel.

I like the design, sometimes those cross buck design tables leave some big time knee knockers, looks like you figured the arc for roominess. Makes a very noce presentation too.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes! the table we had there before had legs, meaning every time someone sat at the built in bench they had to push the table out, slide in, then pull the table back in. Turned into tug of war with the table.
