Client wanted a Fender Stratocaster coffee table from Maple with insets for the tuner knobs.
Made from 8/4” Maple and the insets are Roasted Elm. Legs are trapezoid in shape. We went back and forth on what the legs would look like. He wanted triangle shapes bit I told him that if someone smashed their toe on it the Maple would act like a meat cleaver! He accepted my suggestion for the trap shape.
5 coats of Polyurethane as a base, lettering on and two more coats of Wipe On Poly to seal the deal.
I’m very satisfied with the final product and hope he is as well.
As always, comments and critique are always welcomed.
