My wife wanted a hall table made so she could display her Christmas village at Christmas (of course).
The top is made from a 6/4 solid piece of Chamoire Mahogany with some gorgeous figuring to it. The white band is Maple and the outside strip is Jatoba.
The rails are made from Chamoire Mahogany as well and the legs from Sapele.
I used the Miller Dowel system to join the rails to the legs, thus the white dots. M&T jpinery on the legs but it was difficult trying to get clamping pressure on the front and back rails as they tended to want to compress because of the design. Took a bit of ‘persuasion’ to finally get the joints closed up.
I sealed the top with Polymerized Tung oil followed by three coats of high lustre Tung oil, followed by two coats of Wipe on Poly. I sanded between coats with 0000 steel wool.
The legs and rails received two coats of the Wipe on Poly.
Hope you like and thanks for viewing :o)
