This is a set of 4 stacked occasional tables made out of quarter sawn white oak. I got the idea for these tables from a set that my mother has. She bought hers several years ago and it seemed that every time we had a large gathering I always borrowed them. So I figured I’d make my own set. My first project with QSWO. The legs are veneered on two sides so that there’s good “grain” on all four faces. Sort of a pain. This is one of those woods that you can spend way too much time on grain arrangement, but when it looks good it looks good. I also added adjustable feet to each since they could be used on un-even floors. Simply unscrew the adjustment and they won’t wobble. Stack them in the corner or in a closet to save room.
I’ve only used them once so far so they are truly “occasional”.
Finish is Vintage Maple dye. Then lightly sanded to knock the grain back. Then sealed with shellac. Then stained with dark walnut gel stain. Another shellac. Then sprayed with about 5 coats of EM600 WB lacquer.
