The customer had limited space and wanted to have a dual purpose table. It’s 41” wide and 32” tall. Made of American elm with black walnut Danish oil. I am still learning. After going over it with the bionic eye, there are still too many flaws I need to improve.

Thanks for reading and all comments and suggestions are welcome.

Looks good Monte,
You sure that’s not just some fake Ashwood? ;)

Take out the bionic eye and it’s perfect!

Great skills Monte. That is a difficult project with the miters. I think it looks great.

Looks great.

We used to play a game called Michigan Rummy (also called Tripoley) and a table like this would have been perfect for it.

This is a cool project. Everyone should have one for entertainment. Very well done.

I don’t see any flaws! The stained elm is especially nice. The red patterned center is a better match than the usual green felt. The fact that it is dual purpose is a bonus. Do not point out the imaginary flaws to the buyers. Let us know what they say when they see it. Bet they are happy (and I know you didn’t charge enough).

Super craftsmanship! Just put another coat of wax on it for your sake, take a nap; and those imaginary flaws will certainly disappear. Russell

Monte that’s really nice looking. I think you might be a little to critical. It sure looks like a winner to me.
