This table is made out of solid black walnut and a curly maple decorative border. I went with dovetails on the rails and for my first time, I think they turned out OK. The table is finished with tung oil. I am in the middle of making a “matching” table, sort of, but I am going with finger joints instead of dovetails because I really think they look good. I will also do mortise and tenon rack in the bottom. Thanks guys!
