My wife wanted a new kitchen table so it gave me a chance to use up some 4x4 red oak I had from my last project. It is finished with GF candle light stain. The design is kind of like Lincoln logs with notched posts and base.

This is the top. Also red oak. The outer frame is 2 1/4 inch frame with ply attached to a cleat that runs inside the frame. On top of that is the 3/4 red oak with the angled boards.glued down to the ply. The top is finished with 2 part epoxy (which I hate using on real wood) but my wife wanted it. Hopefully will attach top to bottom tomorrow.

Thanks guys. Yes the table is heavy. It should keep the house from blowing away in our next hurricane.

I love the base and legs. It couldn't really get much stronger. I worry a little about your top though and seasonal expansion/contraction of the wood. I might be over thinking this, but your miter joints on the outside banding may get some stress. Anyone with some more experience have any thoughts??
