So… I’ve got a spot at the corner of my two sofas that needs a table. Trouble is that I have three or four projects lined up in advance of that table (and I haven’t yet come up with a design idea I like). SO… I banged this puppy out in a few hours just to function until I do something for real.

Birch ply, veneer tape, pocket screws. I did bother to line up the grain. Ebony minwax and lacquer.

Point of order: is it cheating to post a picture of a project take while the finish was still wet?

:-)

Next up… a cabinet in Bubinga.

Not cheating! What else do you do while waiting for the finish to dry?

I think this is very cool.

I chuckled at the “finished project” question…

oh and a question for you—how long will this be in use before the “real” one gets built? Around here, once it is in place, well, it seems to stay for a very long time… “out of sight, out of mind” sort of thing

So… the finish is dry. Man… I totally STINK at finishing. Under glancing light there are peaks, valleys, and desserts in the finish! And yet, in the living room it looks great. REALLY like how the grain (of the plywood! it’s bookmatched!) is poking through the dark stain. Looks very cool.

I suspect this will be in service for quite some time :-)
