Ya, i suppose in some area this ole dog is slow to change.  My saws cut, and I seem to have preferences for straight cuts, well at least in the past.  Now, after almost seven years of furniture making, i'm actually building my first oval table top.  And even more astonishing - i'm enjoying it!

I wiped this unfinished oval tabletop with mineral spirits to "appear" somewhat finished for the pics.  In process is this one, and it's mamma.

Dimensions:  64" x 38"  3" thick
Mama:            85" x 47" 3" thick

My plan (for this and future pieces) to build and finish the tops, and allow the customer to choose from completed (or not) legs and heights, and table type. 

I'd love to hear what you think about Oval.  I'll be sure to post some pics of the completed top, hopefully on some of the leg options before long.
