This is an entry table I just made for my mom. I took her to the hardwood store and she picked out the woods used and was pretty excited. The Padauk was 6/4 and the Black Limba finished up 7/8. The Padauk was from a 10’ x 11” board, so the grain is very similar to each board. The table stands 32” high, top is 5ft long and total 12” deep. I used pocket screws for the joinery you can’t see and mitered joints for the others. The finish was BLO and spray laquer sanded with 600 to knock down the dust nibs. It turned out silky smooth. The design was my own although I did see something similar at an art gallery downtown and used it for my inspiration. Mom really loves it and my payment was that I could pick out any piece of wood from the store within reason…SCORE!!!
Thanks for looking.
