Modern Waterfall Table (The Obtuse Tables)

This pair of “waterfall” style tables I’m calling The Obtuse Tables were made from a repurposed maple butcher block countertop with a leg frame made from reclaimed mahogany. The main surface of the table wraps down at 95 degrees, so each of the legs kicks over at 5 degrees. The original idea behind this design was that due to the angle of the legs, the table would look like it wants to tip over, but it won’t due to the weight distribution. However, the mahogany legs are reversible and I actually flipped them around because it look better to me that way. Also, because of the darker color they’re almost hidden when viewed at the right angle. I used a mix of regular splines and dovetail splines all made from mahogany to achieve the look.
