This table was commissioned by two very good friends of mine. Made entirely of Quartersawn Red Oak, I tried to stay true to classic techniques such as mortise and tenon joinery all around, turned legs, and breadboard ends (both on table and leaf). The leaf stores inside the table as you can see. The finishing protocol to make tiger oak really pop includes 1) aniline dye 2) partial seal coat w/ tung oil finish 3) gel stain 4)Final coat of arm-r-seal polyurethane.

I really have a love affair with tiger oak, it’s so beautiful. They LOVED the table.
