Wanted a new project and needed to get some “stuff” off the floor, so this is the result. A traditional sofa table did not excite me much, so decided to spice it up a little by adding padauk edging to quartersawn red oak top and bullnosed padauk bands set into riftsawn red oak legs. Minwax Provincial stain on the oak, finished with shellac and wax.
Ended up as something of a hybrid style, but is pleasing to my eye and THE BOSS likes it. I think padauk is very pretty wood, but sure is dirty to work – the project won’t be completely finished until I get the rest of the orange splinters out of my thumbs and orange dust out of the towels…
