This was a build from a FWW article by Garrett Hack. As a hobbyist, I tend to make stuff that is overbuilt, with big, clunky joinery. Also as a hobbyist ww, I tend to stick to what I’m comfortable with. This project had a lot of very delicate, complex (for me) joinery that was a good challenge.

Table is cherry with wenge leg caps and zebrawood drawer fronts. Finished with Minwax “tung” oil and paste wax.

This piece matches the other things you have made, with simplicity being one of the hallmarks. You continue to fill up your home with beautiful furniture that you build yourself.

I am having a little trouble getting a true image of this table in my mind. Did you use a wide angle view for the pictures? The middle picture seems to have the least distortion, but it may be my aged, tired old eyes. Putting the table where there is more uniform light, and then moving away from it to take the picture would clear up the distortion and give you more depth of field. Cropping that more distant picture would give you the close up view you want.

Of course, I am just on my first cup of coffee, and everything may be a little bleary… (-:

Snow is melting here finally… now that I have said that, we will get another snow storm… (-:

Nice, however in my opinion, I think the too detracts in size and thickness!

Thanks Jim!

Yeah, I didn’t do the pics well. The reflection of the light off the top combined with using a shallow depth of field makes it difficult to see the top.

We’ve had a strange winter here. Record breaking snow in December and then almost no snow since then. But still cold and almost no snow melt yet. Will be nice once it’s finally spring!

The weather has turned colder here again, but it still melts at mid day. The weather in Anchorage is totally unpredictable, and the forecasts are frequently wrong. Being a coastal city with mountains all around us is most of the problem.
