I built this custom dining table for a client in Santa Fe, NM a few months ago. There were a few fussy tricks to work out while building it so I decided to write an article on my Furniture Blog about how I built it.

Great write up on your blog. Even with a well equipped professional shop, that table is still a lot of work. Love the shape of the legs together with the gentle curve of the top. I suspect you had a lot of blood, sweat, and tears, coming up with you library of templates. Great job!
