    Indeed unusual. I think I saw something like that back in my college days but “da boys” said I was hallucinating.

          So, how do you think he did it?

          You can see the floor running continuous under the table, so first off we need to accept that itaks not what it looks like - I.e. the actual floor planks peeled up.

          I'm assuming he matched his stock to the floor planks, then cut the ends on a long angle to make a scarf joint. Somehow he's fudged that joint - some crazy good fill and touch up finish - at the floor to make it look continuous.

          My question is whether the floor is entirely intact and the table simply sits on it, or did he actually cut into the floor, maybe even back-up the ends of the floor planks and pry them up a bit, so that the table legs fit under?

            From the picture it may look like the legs are shaped and scarfed in to the floor planks to look continuous. ( a type of joint that would be used in wooden ship building )

            mayhaps something like this.

              Pretty cool! Looks like they used 2x4's from Home Depot to build the legs.

                Is it real? Or, is it photoshopped? I can't tell.
