This reproduction of the Gustav Stickley #603 round taboret is based on Robert Lang’s plan in Shop Drawings for Craftsman Furniture. It is made of local black walnut obtained from Spacht Sawmill. The first photo shows the entire table, but the glare on the top doesn’t reveal the figure very well, so you can see that in the third photo. It was made as a present for the wedding of my friends’ daughter, Caitlin Rooney, to Gary Merto, and the inscription is visible in the second photograph. The finish consists of linseed oil, followed by 4 coats of amber shellac thinned to about 1/2 lb cut, then 3 coats of thinned polyurethane, and a top coat of amber wax. Each coat dried for at least a full day and was sanded lightly with 320 grit before the next coat was applied. The wax was rubbed out with #0000 steel wool then buffed with a damp cloth.

Lovely table! Man some LJs have the best luck at local saw mills. The finish looks like great and must feel amazing.
