Wow that is one nice table! The in-laws are lucky to get it. I see how you glued up the edge boards but how did you glue up the board ends?

Thanks for sharing

That is a beautiful table. I really like how you did the leg joinery. I made a headboard for my kingsized bed that is a match for your tabletop but it appears your glue up went much better than mine. I like to never got it flat! Great build. Your in laws should give you a few ‘get out of jail free cards’ for this!

Beautiful table. The top looks great! The walnut base is equally impressive.

That’s awesome.., I really like the multiple wood types. I’ve never made anything that big round before. How did you cut the table top to make it round?

I made a big plate for my router….found center and screwed my router plate to it….plunged down about quarter inch and went around. Then i took the plate off and top bearing flush routed to my groove.
