A new table for the front hall. The base is wenge and the top sapele. I found the sapele would tear out easy if blades weren’t really sharp. The scraping card came into play, and the through mortise and tenons taught me a lot and made me, once again be impressed by the skills I see on some other people’s projects. Finished with waterlox semi gloss but should have gone with satin. According to me and the boss.

very nice table and contrasting wood – I am completing a similar piece but without the floating top. I am using GF satin and was on the fence about going with semi-gloss – we will see if my boss approved once it’s in our foyer!

One of the best features of making your own table is that you can make exactly the size that you want for the space that it is going to occupy. It really looks like it belongs there. Good job.
