Unlike the 1st table,this one is totally made from mahogany on the top and oak on the skirting.

The legs were a very old 4 X 4 which I had difficulty identifying,I believe it to be oak but very old growth oak being so different grained than the skirting.

The first photo was to not only the table,but the idea that even I can clean my shop!

The second was to show the floor( ha) the top with very little difference in grains/shades.

The 3rd shows a closer view of the leg top verses the skirting grain patterns.

Any ideas about the leg wood type.( I still think it oak,that’s my story and I’m sticking to it…!)

The finish on this table I went with the sanding sealer to fill some deeper grain and then poly (in the first photo)

After 2 coats of poly and some rubbing down with 0000,I applied a coat of the Pledge furniture oil,after 3 days of drying.

Instead of the spar varnishes high gloss,this is a satin(for the more traditional customer)

Basic or not, it looks great!
