Default Side table with Granite Top

Just finished this table with a granite top and cherry base. I've had a partial slab of granite sitting around for a while and wanted to make something out of it in order to make more room in my garage/workshop.

Nice job Ravin. That's an interesting contrast.

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.

I like the contrast between the legs and top, the square with round. I like the mortise and tenons too. Really attractive table.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

That is really nice. I hope you have that top well braced underneath tho. With that shape, there is bound to be some idiot sit on it sooner or later, would really be a shame if it broke.

The nice joints add a lot to your table, Ravin.

Ravin, that looks great! I think that's something I might try to make for my wife's bedside table one day. I've been thinking about building some for her alarm clock to replace what she currently has and I like that idea.

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

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Thanks for all the positive comments everyone. The slab was large enough to make more tops so I have also made a rectangular top to go with another table I'm currently making.

Yes I'd hate to see someone sit on it. Probably need something on there as a deterrent - a plant would do - a cactus would work well

That's very well done! Are you cutting the granite too, or sending it out? If you're cutting it, HOW?
