Thread: First attempt at a refined project

    First attempt at a refined project

    First post here

    Have mostly worked on home projects and outdoor cedar furniture. I wanted to try and make something more refined so I came up with this. Walnut top/shelf with hard maple legs and ribbon maple for the apron. Should have picked a square table with a conventional apron/leg combo as working out the angles and joints was a challenge for me. But we only get better as we learn.

    Nice table....I like the look and the wood combo. Now a square table will be a piece of cake for you to make after doing this one!

    Very nice first project. Clean lines, nice fit and finish and beautiful wood. Well done. I love the little "flame" at the bottom of the back leg.
    It's best to fall behind schedule as quickly as possible.
    That way you have more time to make it up.
