Up to now, my wife, child, and I have been using portable pop-up trays to sit down and eat dinner. Now we have this – I just moved it into the house tonight. Chairs will be project #3 or 4. I’m thinking my wife’s vanity might have to come next.
It’s a relatively small table which will seat four. All the wood is some variant of walnut except for the cherry strip inlaid across the width. As with the desk, a coat of danish oil and several coats of wipe-on poly provided the finish.
I had the tabletop done for some time but I didn’t know what I wanted to do with the legs. After watching some Sam Maloof videos recently…well, you can see the inspiration there. I contemplated putting some sort of stretcher to connect the legs across the width, but in the end, decided against it since the table is so small and very stable as-is. Time will tell how the joinery holds up.
