Floating top able
A pine table with a "floating top". Tapered legs done with just a handplane. Drawer front's grain matches the grain in the front apron, since it was cut out from that board. ***-beading around drawer opening fills in the saw kerf. Top is a three board glue-up, with a nice curve cut on all four edges. Front and back aprons have a "double cloud" cut away. Side aprons are inset, to form a "box" around the drawer. Top sits on a collar inside this box. Collar sticks up about 1/2' above the aprons. Collar also acts as a "kicker" to keep the drawer from tipping down when it is open. About a good, full weekend end to build, with another three days to apply the stain ( darkWalnut) and three coats of gloss Poly. I'd post more pictures, IF I knew how.
