I made this table to represent the economic times we find ourselves in. One half of the table is made of pine, put together with pocket screws. It is utilitarian & somewhat battered (I stressed the top).
The other half is mahogany, mortise and tenon joinery, hand made inlay, the whole nine yards. It is polished and clean. This side has a drawer which, when opened reveals a jagged edge to match the top and drawer front.
This was a great project and I like the looks of the top even more than I expected to. I’ve already sold this table, and hope to make another before long.
The finish is Danish Oil and tung oil.
