The design I saw for this table called it a Jupiter style table I don’t know why but it sure was fun to make. It’s not obvious but the top is book joined and the stretchers are lapped and mortised and tenoned to the legs. The woods are walnut and cherry with a boiled linseed finish and a Howard’s wax protection. I love the simple and elegant design and the woods contrast each other so nicely. Hope you like it.
Thanks for looking.

Nice looking table. My guess on the name is that the round book-matched top looks like the planet Jupiter.

I like this table too. I also appreciated your previous pencil box project – nice original design and fine details. Well done.
