Your craftsmanship shows in your use of the wood grain and joinery. What an eye catcher.

Forgive my ignorance, but is birdseye maple simply more figured wood (birdseye figure?) from a separate part of the same type of maple tree that the legs came from? That's quite a color difference! Or is it 2 different types of tree?

Perhaps someone could educate me on this.

12strings, birdseye is not a special maple specie, it's that whoa… cool, when you mill hard maple. The patina comes from the age of this particular material. It is easily 100yrs young. The finish was a hand rubbed oil-varnish.

Hello Brian,
I very much like this table, well done!!
As I will try to build such a table myself I'm very much interested of the "inner" construction (how the frame is put together). Could you please add such a picture (from underneath) to your project?
Thanks very much!
