This is a maple Burl entry table that is made to match a coffee table I’ve also built. The legs are 2” thick walnut with a cherry stretcher. The stretcher is supported through the legs with a 3/4” aluminum bar and the front leg has a 25 degree rake to it. The legs are cut from the same piece of walnut and the grain goes across all 3 legs. The base is finished with danish oil and lacquer.
The burled top is filled with an ebony colored filler and sanded to 320. This was then coated in Danish oil and a varying blend of wipe-on poly was used to build up a good gloss coat
Pictures of the coffee table will be uploaded later today

At first, I thought it was an ironing board.

This is great. Good job. I like 99% of it. The 1% I don’t like is the metal.

Great-looking top and an interesting base, well done. Do you wipe the poly on with a rag? Any trouble with streaking/dripping? I’m finishing a slab top now and having some trouble with the edges slumping a bit.

I do use a rag and I thin the poly pretty aggressively, especially in the beginning and the end. I used spray on poly on the edges first, then wiped out the rest. I sanded up to 320 and used 400 grit in between. Hope this helps!
