Table with wide teak edging and teak legs. Top is mahogany. It’s a multi-use table that will double as an artist’s work table ( it’ll be covered with glass), and extra dining table. Drawer is for storing art supplies. My first time working with teak and I really enjoyed this wood. It works easily and has a natural oil/waxy feeling. I had concerns about gluing the teak because of its oiliness but I wiped it with acetone and then glued using yellow glue (Titebond III) and had no problems. In fact I took some pieces and test glued them and then tried to break them—no problem with the glue joints. The yellow glue held great. The legs were laminated to make 3” square.
