Just finished my dining table. Solid mahogany. The legs are glued mahogany from 50+ year old pallets from Central America (mostly)—the top & bottom boards, of the pallets, were made from mahogany with oak stringers. There are no metal fasteners – the joinery is mortise & tenon with wedged dowels. The reason the legs and apron are laying in two pieces is because I made them 4” too narrow. Someone said you can tell good work by how well the mistakes are repaired – there are no pefect pieces – if they don’t have repairs, they likely should have. I was very happy with the repaired apron width.

Hey dude-good job!
but imagine I have seen exactly exactly the same work with examples of products on this site:

http://3weekiet.com/woodworking

downloaded I course and there still such and other 16.000 projects
cool materials with detailed instructions for use in each woodworking project, I recommend

- woodworkqgyl

You may have seen things similar – but you didn’t see ‘exactly’ my work. My work is my work – not plans copied from some site you say has plans for work ‘exactly’ like mine. I’ve never seen site you posted. Have a good day.

Mr. Woodworkqgyl. You posted this same crap on another of my posts. You are posting a complete falsehood. I’m going to respectfully ask you to prove your statement by showing even one set of plans that is exactly like mine or admit you’re statement is not true. As You can tell I do take personally your false statement.
