My first real piece of all-wood furniture. Made from sapele (base) and curly maple (top), meant to have the top appear to float above the base with a little asian influence. Stuck with dowels for this one as my mortise and tenon joints were not up to par yet. Finished with arm r seal semi gloss. Dont mind the ikea furniture to the left, they’re slowly being replaced by my own creations one-by-one. Funny to see the actual table line up pretty well with the tracing i had drawn on the walls to check size, proportions, etc before building it… All built in a city apartment…
Apologies for the garbage pics, working with an iPhone only here.
Curious what folks think about the proportions, wood choice, finish, etc (it’s taller than I would have liked due to having a very curious dog who would otherwise have been able to get his snout above the top).
