We currently have a glass table in our kitchen which I don’t find aesthetically pleasing so I decided to make one that would fill the bill. I really didn’t have to work too hard to get approval from the kitchen supervisor either. :)

The table is qswo and measures 42” across and stands 30” high. I finished it with Minwax Golden Oak 610B and 3-4 coats of Arm-R-Seal with light sanding with 400G between coats. Now, I need to wait for the finish to completely cure before putting the table into service.

I will post a detailed blog as well should anyone have any questions. Thanks for looking!

Absolutely beautiful work, especially on the sawing! I love the style and design. The through tusk tenons just add the finishing touvh to this masterpiece. Great job!

Spectacular. Did you wipe that finish on or spray?

Thanks, everyone!

Mike, the table has 4 legs, one in back is hidden. I also posted a blog with more detail.

Steve, haha! You win the prize for guessing the next project. I have started the chairs, but they will take a while, I am hoping before Christmas, but don’t hold me to that.

Colonel, I wiped the Arm-R-Seal on. It goes very quickly and there were no issues with dripping or sagging.

It’s a real beaut Art!

I thought it was a side table in the pictures, lack of scale in the background I suppose 8^)

You have a real talent for that QSWO and impressive joinery. Glad to see your putting your shuttered existence in the past and getting a-round to more Art-ful platforms!

(sorry, all I could come up with!)

Thanks, everyone.

Geez, Splint, the only reason I post these projects is to give you an outlet for your puns. Chairs will be next so please don’t sit on your laurels and start to arm yourself.
