This is the matching hall table/shelf for another one I built and posted earlier. The first table was designed to fit into the curve of a winding staircase. The front of this one has the same curve but is squared off to mount to the wall.

Top is chamoire mahogany, skirt is ebonized mahogany and the legs are maple. Finish is over 50 coats of oil. Once this and the other table are fully cured I will be waxing the tops using 0000 steel wool for the final finish – the skirts and legs are completed.

Just beautiful! Awesome Look!
That finish looks glass smooth already.
Very nice!

Thanks Robert – it is glass smooth right now but shows tiny traces of dust bits that will need to be “refined” with the steel wool and wax. I figure four weeks of curing time due to the thickness of the oil – you can actually look down into it. Anything sitting on the top has a visible gap between it and the wood surface.

Hi Don;

Too bad the legs warped up on you like that. LOL

VERY nice job.

The wood for the top is beautiful!

Yeah – these legs are about warp three I would say!

Beautiful top !!
What kind of “oil” did you use on it ?
