Here is a table that I just finished this past weekend. This was my first attempt at creating a piece of furniture in the Arts and Crafts style. I really enjoyed working with this type of construction, it is very precise and unforgiving with mistakes. All pinned through mortises and only 6 screws conecting the top. Great practice on using a mortiser.
The wood is white oak. The finish is a liquid dye, oil stain, amber shellac and wax. It was also the first time using this type of finish and it turned out great. The next time I build a piece like this, I want to try ammonia fuming, if I can find industrial strength ammonia.
Can anyone recommend a great reference book for furniture design related to the Arts and Crafts style?
Also does anyone know of a good source for QSWO in the southwest region? I would like to use QS for my next project.
