I was fortunate to find some really pretty QSWO for this project. The table is 48” wide by 15” deep by 30.5” high. I used Minwax Golden Oak oil stain and GF Arm-R-Seal for the top coats. I worked really hard getting the faux through tenons on the top just right since they are a main focal point and I did such a poor job with through tenons on a previous project. Questions and comments are welcome. Thanks for looking.

really, really nice work! I love the lines, and you did a great job on the ‘feaux through’ tenons.

I like the looks of your table. Might use the ideas to build one for myself.

You Sir are a scourge on the world supply of QS white oak!
Another fine classic, what manner of setup did you use for your tenon pyramids?

My thanks to everyone for the kind comments.

Dan, I am certain that we will be able to work out a licencing agreement. haha

Splinter, I have been called many things many times and deservedly so, but this is the first time I have been called a scourge. I had to look it up in the dictionary. :) The pyramids were simple; I made the legs longer than needed and set the SCMS to 12° with a stop block, then made 4 cuts on each leg. Once all the legs had their pyramids, I moved the stop block 3/8” closed to the blade and cut them off square.

Willie, retirement is wonderful! :)

AV, the “tenons” are only 3/8” long and are set into a mortise that doesn’t go all the way through the top. If they were real through tenons, they would restrict the movement of the top and cause irreparable damage eventually as the top expanded and contracted. They are located above the legs to give the illusion that they are true through tenons.

Interesting. A sincere thanks for the detail in your explanation. I have a lot to learn about the severity of expansion’s impacts. I wouldn’t have thought a top that size would have been that susceptible – especially QS. Again, a beautiful piece

AV, I use the Shrinkulator to estimate movement. A 30% change in relative humidity from summer to winter can produce about 1/8” movement in qswo. Maybe it would be okay, but why chance it?

You’ve definitely got some nice ray fleck in those boards! This is a great looking A&C table, and one that will great your guests very well!

Also, I agree with you that you’ve got to account for wood movement—better to be careful than sorry!

Wonderful table Art! Totally my style other than I prefer a darker finish. I’ve been wondering what you’ve been up to. Will there be a blog for this table? I love it when people continue the grain across the drawer front. I learned that trick watching NYW decades ago. Thanks for making my morning!
