This table could magically appear in an Auguste Renoir painting , and feel right at home . Wonderful proportions ( esp. the legs ) corners….nice colours .
Looks great outdoors also.; ready for a garden party… table cloth needed .

Very nice, doing something similar in canary wood and walnut. Really want to send you a message about it but I’m new and have to post 5 times first :-( How did you cut the slots in the top for the legs? A dado blade? Also did you cut the slots before you glued it up?

Nice mix of wood, however I like the way you inserted the table legs into the table top.
Good Job

thanks for all the kind words. I cut the slots in the top after glueup but before cutting the curves. I used the already made tennon tho mark the mortise which I cut with a backsaw and cleaned up with a chisel.

What types of wood did you use there? They look sharp together.
