Nice job. I'd bet you could get some serious bucks for that, if you decide not to keep it.

I agree. Very well done. The bent legs are a kind of art nouveau and the top is rustic. Makes an interesting mix.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Beautful wood, but if I had it, I'd likely turn the legs so they splay out rather than in. You can't put any real weight on the ends of this table without making it unstable. The center of gravity must stay over the base to be stable. The wider the base (where it touches the floor), the more stable the piece will be. But, wow, what a gorgeous hunk of Maple.

Nice slab! How'd you bend the legs?

Don't think there will be 2 of those that look alike.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.
