Here is a little entry hallway table I just finished! I chose Walnut and Birdseye Maple as the two woods- table top and bottom table are walnut with maple layers while the legs and aprons are all walnut).
The legs have a french curve taper on them (which I’m particularly pleased with as this was my first attempt at curve’s- made a template, cut on band saw, filed with rasp, sanded the remaining wood smooth). The joinery are simple dowels which for the size of the table work good enough- plan to move into mortise/tenons in the next project. The table top has a 1/8” round over on the top with a 45 degree chamfer bit on the bottom and is held on with figure eight connectors that I got from Lee Valley. Finally the bottom shelf is held on with a small lap joint (and glue of course).
Finished the table with regular Waterlox and couldn’t be happier with the results! (5 coats in total)- I’ll be interested to see how the table finally cures in the next couple of months.
This was one of my first totally creative projects (didn’t copy anyone or build it based on non-original plans) and I’m really excited with the results! Now onto the next project!!
Sorry for the crappy pictures- looks like the camera phone just isn’t cutting it these days!
