Side Table of Purpleheart with a Maple base. No finish is applied in these pictures, but General Seal-A-Cell will be the initial finish followed by General Top Coat Gloss, then a final layer of Satin General Top Coat.
Fun and fast project. First time using my Hollow Chisel Mortiser, and the Disc Sander is a life saver for making the mitered tenons. Downside is the shipping costs. Heavy!! New York to Calif.

A nice looking table Tom. I love Purpleheart, the deep rich color it becomes as it ages. Wonderful stuff.

Very nice project. Like Charlie said, larger photos would be better.

Great table. You mean you’ve given it away already.
