This was my first log I took to the saw mill and had cut for myself. It was a fun project trying to work the crotch grain that changes direction every other inch. Split is keyed with english walnut and filled with black resin. Trying to develop my own style, square tapered legs with round tenons through the top splayed on an angle and secured with ebony wedges.

Leg detail is nice! Good start on developing your own style.

Two thumbs up!

Can you add a close-up of the split?

I like the leg dowel’s standing proud of the surface, well designed and well built. Ditto on the close-ups

Sorry for the delay in getting another picture here. Just finished a weekend long craft show, it was a sprint to the finish line. Here is a good studio picture of the top

I dig it!

I am interested in the technique, how did you bore the leg tenons? Are the holes square to the top or at an angle to create the splay?

Hadn’t noticed this before.

I think many attempt to create an aesthetically pleasing piece by authoring new design elements.

Sometimes it works… Other times… Not so much. This table makes the grade with flying colors.
