This is my first major project. It ended up bigger than I had originally planned, 74” x 32”. I used Afromosia for the table top. The base is made of Mahogany. I picked up 20 linear feet of reclaimed 4×4 Mahogany in Louisiana for $60 that I used for the legs! You can see the orignal lumber in the last photo. I received the chairs from my parents and refinished the teak and reupholstered them. Overall I’m pretty happy with the project and it only cost me around $200!

However, I need improvement on my joinery techniques. I move frequently so I wanted a table base that I could disassemble – so no glue… Consequently, the table has a bit of a wobble in it. I think I may have to redo the corner braces more precisely.

It’s a great looking table! I love the wood grain and color tone.

Beautiful classic style and look. How is the table top attached to the skirt? The corner leg attachments look to be the classic lag screw/bolt stud attachment. Is there something wrong so that they don’t tighten all the way or are not attached to the skirt solidly? I would love to see close-ups of the corner assemblies.
