My dad is building a house up in the Colorado mountains and I wanted to give him something for the house. To avoid one of those “Oh that’s nice but where do I put it” kind of moments, I asked him what they needed for the new place. He asked for an entryway table to put along the wall right inside the front door. I’m very proud of this piece for a few reasons:
1) First time using mortise and tenon joinery (I’d never even tried it until this!)
2) First time doing a decorative inlay
The table is built from walnut using all M&T joints, and the accent wood is sycamore from a local sawyer. This is by far the “finest” piece I’ve ever done, and I’m very pleased with how it turned out – and I learned SO much doing it!
Please provide your feedback so I can continue to improve my skills – I’ve only been a hobbyist woodworker for about a year!
