This project is based on the Wall Hung Console from the New Yankee Workshop. The overall dimensions are the same: 5’ long, 14” out from the wall at the middle, and 8” out at the ends. It is made from walnut lumber given to me by my in-laws that came from a tree on their property. The inlay and inner edge band is purpleheart. Originally I wasn’t going to have any purpleheart in it, but a mistake during construction led to that addition. The whole construction process can be found by checking out my blog
This project involved a lot of firsts for me:
First table, first time using a plunge router, a planer sled or cutting arcs on the bandsaw, first time doing inlays, edge banding, bent lamination, first time using walnut or purpleheart. I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out. I hope you like it.
