Here is another challenging project found on the Internet that was a magazine article some time in the past. Woods are Walnut and fiddle back Maple with handmade Maple dowels. Adjusted length to fit my location, which is slighly shorter than the one in the article - www.popularwoodworking/article/floating-table/. Have fun. The curve of the legs is slighly distorted due perspective of the wide angle camera lens.

Woops, didn't mean to post twice. Finish is two coats of Natural Danish Oil, wet sanded the second coat with 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper. Would get more gloss is I did this again.

That's a handsome table. Two tone is something I always like, and walnut and maple are terrific together. I ??also like a gloss finish. Did you sand the top or use a scraper? Sorry, miss read your post on the finish. Old eyes again.

I have never seen a Floating Table Top. Very interesting and nicely done

Wet sanded the last coat with Natural Danish Oil and 400 grit wet/dry sandpaper. Yields a subtle mat but yet somewhat glossy finish.
