A very nice table.

The simple design was a wise choice to show off the incredible grain in the top. Well done! Thanks for sharing.

Thank you.
I had been saving that wood for a very long time, turned out better than I thought it would.

Looks super , if it makes the boss happy you have twice the success.

My wife wanted a small coffee table for the living room.
I used Mahogany, as I have for so many other tables.
It works easy with hand tools and darkens naturally over time.
The legs are not pinned to the aprons, which are mortise and tenoned together, the inside leg edges are tapered, as is the underside of the top. I used Tung Oil and wipe on poly for the finish.
