I have been blogging on this build, but now it is done and I thought I would post it as a project. The wood is VG fir with walnut accents. The top has breadboard ends held in place with walnut dowels. The feet and cross supports also have walnut dowels through the mortise and tenons. Finish is General Finishes Seal-A-Cell and Arm-R-Seal topcoats rubbed out with 0000 steel wool and wax.
The wood for the top came from a friend of the table’s owner who built a magnificent yacht/schooner and gave her some left over wood that sat in her barn for the better part of a decade. Now it is a table sitting under the framed picture of the yacht’s blueprint. You should check out the link—apparently it was built in a barn in Montana. What craftsmanship.
As a bonus, I threw a cutoff from the trestle beam on the lathe and made a candle holder and dug out some pieces from the cutoff bin before it goes to the fire pit to make a trivet with the same motif. More pictures are available on the blog.
