Some folks make something once and then move on. Me, once is never enough because I always figure I can do it better. Well, a little while ago a posted a tea table with a turned post.
I liked it and got some good comments. I really enjoyed making that table and decided a matched set would be kinda nice. The problem was whether to use cherry or walnut. So I used both. It was good practice with the lathe, trying to get matching posts. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen. A wild skew on the walnut spindle guaranteed that they would not match, so I have two cherry tables that look pretty similar and two walnut tables that aren’t quite the same.
The tables are 26 inches tall with a 19 inch diameter top. I finished these with a gloss wipe-on poly.
