« Part 3: Legs and Apron Completed Part 4 of Coffee Table - Red Oak & Padauk series no next part

Last weekend I was able to complete the coffee table, apart from finishing it. I put a bevel on the top and bottom corners of the table top, as well as a slight bevel on all the way around the legs, and on the bottom edges of the apron. As per a recommendation from someone on my last blog entry, I also put a decently heavy bevel on the leg bottoms, to try to avoid splintering. I attached the top with table top fasteners and cut the slots for them with my biscuit joiner.

Cat Approved:

Until I get a chance to finish it, that will be the last update.

Thanks for checking it out :-)

Nice understated use of the paduke, adds accent without overwhelming the look. Just watch with the paduke that it doesn’t bleed into the oak.

Russ, thanks, I wanted something but not too much of it, had thought about doing inlay in the top or legs, but when I sketched it up I just wasn’t feeling it, so I went with what I have here. For finishing it, I’m planning on spraying it using my HVLP system, so I’m thinking there shouldn’t be too many issues with that… I hope

Thanks Jacob
