Boy did my mortiser earn its keep on this project!
Constructed from QSWO from a design by American Furniture Design Co. (purchased at Lee Valley). I’ve seen many similar tables online. The mortiser had a heck of a go trying to hog out the mortises in the legs but it got the job done.
If I was to do it again I would probably reduce the proportions a little as this thing is oversized for our TV room. I had quite a bit of tearout on the top and ran out of patience trying to remove it as my stock kept getting thinner and thinner ;( I’ve since been trying to use card scrapers and hand planes to cure this on other projects.
Finish was a wipe-on blend of poly and tung oil.
