This entry/hall table is one of my favorite projects. It has a 5/4 live edge walnut top and skirt and the legs are 8/4 walnut. I wasn’t sure about the leg design until I got it together and decided it worked really well. Sanded to 320 and finished with 4 coats of Arm-R-Seal.

Very nice, very sleek lines. Love the looks of it!

The legs and undercarriage are what make this table unique and beautiful. Any novice can take a slab of wood and throw on steel legs and call it wood working. You styled a unique and fanciful lovely piece that just happens to have a nicely done top.
