Hello Brian;
—-Shaker design, hand cut joinery, milk paint base and….did I miss any-thing?

Great show of your talents here….and some great ‘wood art’.

So now, if I may…., it’s my turn at question time, and yes, once you get to know me you’ll learn I’m all-ways asking questions or making comments….LOL. What is the method of ‘wood joinery’ you are using here and what more can you tell us about the ‘milk base top’? Also,what species of wood are you using here?

I enjoy the visual aspects of your work and for what you have shared here I can only say,

Thank you.

Its mortise and tenon joinery the top is sipo a type of mahogany. The base is finished with cream milk paint then black milk paint burnished with steel wool with waterlox oil on top of that.

Hi Brian;
—-yes, I’m just re-turning from your website. So you have stated over there a ‘haunched mortise and tenon joint’.
So I’m assuming the wood joint is glued, (?) and then….

Do you or have you used a haunched tenon, offset and side pegged to create a drawbored mortise and tenon joint? Just curious and thanks for your previous prompt reply….

I’ve heard them called “parson’s tables” among others but as they say “A rose by any other name ….” Yes, a beautiful piece. Oh, btw … give it time. Good handmade furniture will often sell itself. I have one of red oak inlaid with ash that I made twenty years ago and I’ve had more offers to buy it than I can recall.
