This table was a no thinker type,it just designed itself over three days.
The wood was left over scraps and ‘rejected’ mahogany levels(to be made into brass bound levels)
Strips glued,planed and wrapped with more mahogany(because of the thin strips this table has a plywood backer)
The skirting is oak and the legs are ash(from a tree felled in town for road expansion)(air dried for 4 years)
The finish I had problems with,the spar varnish (I believe) was old and didn’t set up well,also it left ‘pits’ in the final 2 coats.
NO MORE OLD FINISHES.Period.
