This is an end table made from spalted white oak from trees knocked over during hurricane Katrina on 8-29-2005. The legs are sapele because I had a 2×8x36” piece in the shop gathering dust. My wife came up with the idea and layout of the leg shaping. The shaping of the legs made more dust than any project I can ever remember doing.
The legs are dovetailed to the aprons instead of mortise and tenon joints.
the finish is boiled linseed oil with 3 coats of lacquer sprayed and sanded to 1200 before applting Briwax.
