Nice, great work and use of “odd shaped scrap lumber”, the woods all work well together. Feels good to accompolish a project that tests your hand tool skills, eh?
Will there be a Youtube vid of the build?

I like the table! Did you reinforce the leg joints with a metal “spider” like I’ve seen recommended for shaker candle stands?

I need to try your oil-and-sunlight technique. Really gives the piece that nice antique patina look. Plus it seems like it toned down the differences in color between all those different types of wood you used.

My scrap pile is growing quite large… And I could use some turning practice on my new pole lathe… Only thing I’d do differently is make an oval or elliptical top without all the curves – too busy for my house! Looks like it matches your furniture though – I see some other turned items, a ball-and-claw foot on a chair, etc.

Thanks! Unfortunately there is no video or blog post for this project … it went together too quickly! I just started playing around … one thing led to the other and this table appears!

Thanks, Jeremy. No “spider” here, just the sliding dovetails. I feel once you try this finish technique it will become a favorite. Good luck with that new lathe. I look forward to seeing what come off of it …

Originally, but if you cut the ends with an electric string, you will get a masterpiece ….. Good luck ….
