This is a display table I recently made at a class with sculptural furniture maker Victor Dinovi at Marc Adams School of Woodworking. After making a Maloof Rocker I was hooked on the process of building this type of furniture. I had to wait a couple years until this class came back to the school but it was well worth the wait. The table was made out of poplar. I used a water base dye on it then put on 4 coats of the Maloof finish; 1/3 raw tung oil,1/3 linseed oil,1/3 satin poly followed by 2 coats 1/2 linseed 1/2 tung oil and shredded beeswax. Its a great finish but if you missed anything in your sandining it sticks right out.The table is rather high at about 41” but all in all I was happy with the results.I didn’t know you could get poplar to so good.

Gorgeous!!!

You’ll be jealous to know that I live less than 10 miles from Marc Adams School of Woodworking. I’ve taken one class and am anxious to take more.

That is some table.
It has everything that good design is about.
Well worth framing, I can understand why you wanted to take a class.
Will it influence future pieces?
