This was a fun project. The table is made from African Mahogany, milled on my new Ridgid 4330 planer. I bought the mahogany from an eBay store and I really want to thank that guy because the lumber was fantastic and the price was really hard to beat. The aprons are joined to the legs with sliding dovetails, mainly because I wanted to experiment with forming them. I had never really worked with veneers before and I was very pleased with the result. I cut the veneers for the quadrant match with a ruler and a rotary knife, and then jointed the edges with a sanding block and a shooting board. The miters on the top could have been a bit tighter, but that’ll be something to work on in the future. Finished with a few coats of Arm-R-Seal.
