Tilt-Top Table

A beautiful tilt-top table with pleasing proportions featuring a turned (or sculpted) post, an oval top, and curved legs. We’ll build two different versions of the table, one made from Cherry with a more modern design and a tilting top, and a Walnut version with a more traditional look and a non-tilting top.

This is a classic design and quite a departure from the modern style Marc typically focuses on. It’s going to be a fun and challenging project.
