My brother in law asked me to make him some furniture to match a dining room table, this is one of three. Entertainment center and end table to follow.
My woodworking skills have taken a major leap forward… this is the first piece of actual furniture I’ve made, and I”m extremely happy with how it came out.
Mortise and tenon throughout, the top is put together with splines that run the length of the top.
Finished with shellac as a sanding sealer, wipe-on poly for the base and about 7 coats of poly for the top.
I’ll be delivering this tomorrow, just in time for it to make it’s debut at a Superbowl party. If there was ever a time for a coffee table to start it’s life, it’s at a Superbowl party! I had to do something… so I used up a bunch of leftover scrap walnut to make a set of coasters…
Constructive criticism is always welcome!
