I made a pair of chairs for the grandkids for Christmas and they loved them. Shortly afterward my daughter “suggested” that they really needed a table to go along with the chairs.
Back to the shop I went and here is my first ever table!
It’s made from Mahogany with a Walnut and Maple checkerboard in the middle. I made the top like a “giant cutting board”. The checkerboard is not an inlay but rather an integral part of the top.
I tapered the legs and set the aprons back approximately 3/16” from the face of the legs. Mortises and loose tenons hold it all together. The edge profile on the top was cut with a 1/2” round over bit and router.
The table is 24” tall and the top measures 24” x 36”. I used 3 coats of wipe on poly and 3 more coats of spray lacquer on the top only.
It really matched nicely with the chairs.
Thanks for looking and your comments are always welcome!!
