This is a last minute project that I just completed.

The photos are terrible and makes me realize that I definitely need to improve and upgrade my setup for taking photos of larger projects. Too many shadows and dark spots… I took about 80 or so pictures and deleted all bu these few. Will try in a few days to take some outside photos. The big problem is having enough light and a consistent background.
I think I will paint the background wall white and find some sort of white covering to cover any other distractions.

The legs are oak with bloodwoodsplines. Aprons are oak and the top is walnut. I applied 2 coats of boiled linseed oil and 7 coats of hand rubbed poly. I still need to buff and apply briwax.

Merry Christmas all you great Lumberjocks & Family….

Greg, you certainly have a signature style that is unmistakably your own. This is no exception!

That is one amazing table. I really like how you shaped the table. That is definitely a one of a kind table. Just don’t wanna bang into that in the middle of the night, that would leave a mark. Great craftsmanship!

Amazing work, as usual. How do you manage to make the carving/shaping so symmetrical?

You took this to a whole different level with the shaping Greg. I’m assuming you did this like you do the boxes? Great job at keeping the whole thing symmetrical. The splines are a nice touch of contrast. The finish looks great and I look forward to seeing it again when you get that completed. Fantastic craftsmanship!

Really nice work. You are a true craftsman.
I understand about having lighting issues. For a class in college I took pictures of my guitar using a white sheet backdrop. I wound up moving in a dual halogen worklight and every lamp I could find into our spare room. By the time I was done the room was at least 15 degrees warmer than the rest of the house. The pics turned out but I still could have used more lighting.
