I had a rather interesting piece of Spalted Maple that needed to be a tabe top. However, the Mrs said, “Can you make this one a little more traditional?” So, with a fresh batch of African Mahogany just waiting to be used I made a rather traditional base for the table.
Not totally traditional; the legs extend a bit above the apron and the top still floats (I really like floating tops), but traditional enough to satisfy the Mrs. Which, by the way, is a very important criteria.
The top is 42×15, Spalted Maple wrapped in African Mahogany with Maple key in the miters. With the base made of African Mahogany it stands little over 34 inches tall. A seal coat of shellac followed by 5-6 coats of wipe-on poly. Now, to find a place for it.
