Finished my end table. My first attempt at long tapered legs. It’s made mostly of chestnut, a rare wood, since the tree is virtually extinct, The side boards are reclaimed chestnut barn siding, and they’re full of the worm holes that killed the tree. The top is from the top piece of an old upright piano that I found in a dumpster. It’s mahogany veneer over solid oak, with chestnut edging. Given the choice between showing the piano’s serial number, or turning the top over so it’s hidden, I chose to show it.
