Beautiful table. I love the curly maple and the curve in the long aprons to give it a real fine look.

Cheers, Jim

that is a beautiful piece of walnut and the wood choice for the base is spot on, my one thought about your table is i think it could have a better look if the legs were a bit larger, it just seems that the legs being that small dont enhance the top, its just my thoughts, and i say it just as a thing to ponder on, you did a beautiful job and your going to have the joy of seeing it for a long time.

i gotta say natural edge tables are my weakness,you did a nice job on this one.i kinda agree with grizzman about the legs though a little beefier would have looked even better,but ill still give you 5 stars.

Understand about the legs, however, the only curly maple I had for the legs was just 1 3/4" thick. Although not obvious in the photos, they have a gentle curve outwards that goes over real well in the area where I live. These tables are designed to be used behind a sofa or in a narrow hallway which often dictates a more "delicate" design.
