I had some extra boards of mahogany and oak. I laminated the mahogany boards to make the legs and the top is 8/4 oak.

It was fun to build because it took me half a morning to make it. The only request from my wife was that it looked modern. I don’t know about modern but it was designed simple.

Nice simple design and beautiful wood.
Nothing I make ever takes just 3 hours.

Thanks guys, it sure feels good to be done the same day. A little less clutter in the shop for me now.

I don’t think I could have applied the finish coats in 3 hours. Seriously?

Three hours, wow, and to think that I have several projects going at this time and one is well into just over a year old. I think I will put them all on the back burner and build one of your tables. LOL Thanks for sharing, it is a beautiful piece of work.

Thanks Plang, yes it was a fast one. I too have a 1yr birthday party coming up on one of my projects. That is what made this one cool. Feeling you are done with something energizes me to get the others done.


The finish was applied and left to dry within the 3 hrs, but to be precise, you are right it stayed 24 hrs drying. But I wasn’t waiting on it though, I began working on other pending projects.

Have your say...
