Mr Customer finally decided on poplar for his reading table, which is actually a gift for his daughter. As I mentioned when I posted the pictures of the Wife’s reading table, which is made of dimensional lumber and finished with sanding sealer and Poly, like a cabinet, he and his daughter liked the table and the have been bugging me to build one like it for four years. I finally got the hint and the material is now warming up in my shop. Because he is paying good money for a piece of fine furniture for his daughter, I am making a couple of changes to the original design so that I can present them with a piece of sufficient quality to be comparable to any fine piece the might purchase or have made, and so that their table is unique and not to be found in their neighbors parlor. As his choice was popular, and not furniture grade pine, oak, maple, cherry, etc… I took extra care to select heavy, clear, furniture grade pieces with little to no tint of green. I will finish the project with teak oil, applying as many coats as it takes to make the table gleam. So far I have a picture of the plan, and a picture of the lumber, which has overwhelmed my small workshop.
