This is a companion piece to an “Aurora” side table that I adapted from American Furniture Design Co. plan. Obviously mahogany—in this case African with Gaboon ebony plugs and splines. It’s got the leg indent detail that I think is cool.
It turned out darker than I would like, but it looks good with the side table, so I won’t complain too much about it. The dark color comes from my lack of experience dealing with mahogany AND potassium bi-chromate—it’s like Brylcreem, ‘A little dab”ll do ya’
Anyway, I enjoyed the woodworking aspect of it.
Next up, I’m going to build a couple of bedside tables out of pecan—the design being a little bit out of my comfort zone. By that I mean it’s not going to be Arts and Crafts style, but a bit more contemporary.
