I built this out of rough sawn quarter sawn oak from a local mill that had been stickered and air dried for over a year. The ebony came from a friend who gave me a ragged board that he was going to trash.  One man's trash is another's treasure! The plan came out of an old Fine Woodworking article that I did some modifying on in order to meet my tastes.  Very pleased with the outcome and another great learning experience.  I've learned that I am good and building a flat table top, thanks to advice from right here on  I'm getting even better and mortise and tenon joints too.  Finished the table with a combination of Minwax stains and Minwax wipe-on satin polyurethane finish.
