This table started out as a mock up for a close friend who owns a gallery in Los Angeles. He asked me to make a table for him that would be ” Craftsman-Chic” LOL! After fiddling around with some MDF, ( For the record, I have a deep disdain for MDF ) I pulled out some scraps of yellowheart and hard maple and as luck would have it I just happened to have a small piece of scrap white acrylic too. The frame is a simple cross half lap. The acrylic sits in a 3/8” deep stop dado. Inside stock of one short rail was removed to allow for final assembly. The maple legs are 1 3/4” tapering to 7/8”. The finish on this version is a pre-cat lacquer. The final version will have photo-sensitive LED panels to under-light a white glass top.
Side Note: Being that this was a “mock up” the wife laid claim to it immediately. On the bright side, the house smells of pork roast (MY FAVORITE). Not a bad trade in my opinion.
The pics were taken on my phone. Better ones to come soon.
