Was in need of replacing an old table that was made up of some compressed wood covered in formica. Table was made from a 13 foot 8/4 slab of cherry wood. The top was glued up from several pieces that were milled from the slab. The legs were ruff cut on the bandsaw then shaped on the router table with jig. Base was assembled with loose mortise and tenon joinery. The apron and stretchers were cut with a slight bottom arc to them and accented with a thin strip of Gaboon ebony to form an 1/8” reveal. I also curved the ends of the top with with a router. The finish was 5 coats of General Finishes Arm-R-Seal with final coat buffed with #0000 steel wool and Renaissance wax.This was my first attempt at constructing a Kitchen table. I wanted something that was a simple but elegant. Next feat would be making some chairs to go with the table.
