This is a small hallway table I built for my wife. It is one of her anniversary presents. Granted a little early but nevertheless still for her. I made it out of spotted maple and cherry all the wood has been curing for at least 19 year. At least that is what I am told by the small lumber yard I go to hand select pieces for my projects. The project was built over the last few months working on it when I had time. I used the heck our of my #5 Stanley however the rest of my hand planes got a few cuts in too. The most difficult part probably was the creation of the legs as they are two pieces flattened then glued together. I am very happy with the maple top.
To finish I used Tung oil (3 coats) and then 3+ coats of Renaissance Wax. Cheers.
