    Hey, not bad Dan. I like the things on the top of the legs. Just a thought- what if you dropped the things on the bottom of the legs and put the chamfer on the bottom of the table top instead of the top?

    I like flipping the top. I think adding a round over to the bottom (feet) of the legs and reducing the number of corbels to just the outsides of the legs (8 total) might be worth a try. Not sure yet about losing the stretcher.

    altar idea mk3 & 4

    in mk 3, i took off half the corbels, but kept the stretcher and feet for structural stablility. in mk 4, i took off all the corbels, and kept the stretcher and feet. the mk 4 has a cleaner, more massive look, without looking heavy.

    Kinda like the corbels. How about only on the two outside faces of the legs?
