Just finished this table. Winter project. Can’t figure out how to change orientation of second pic. Red oak throughout. Color Choice brand wiping stain was used. Praline for the top and Whisky for the base. The beams were unavailable from my supplier so had to manufacture from poplar then wrap with shop made veneer of oak. Breadboard ends pinned with walnut dowels.

Looks great. Would love more details on wood type (oak & walnut?) and the finish you used.

The table turned out great- I agree with BB1…more details of the build would be nice.

Thanks for posting.

That is a beautiful table – great job! It looks like it will last forever.

What are the dimensions of the top?

Nice, sturdy build. Love the thickness of the table top; it suits the proportions.

Very nice table. How did you attach the vertical leg to the bottom cross member of the base? Thru Tenon?

Yes through tenon with a tenon through the tenon. Can’t remember what you call them.
