I built this to order for a buddy of mine that I teach with. Bookmatched cherry top and leaf. Rule joint with mortised hinges. Legs are tapered on two sides, and mortised to receive tenons in the apron. A dowel runs through a slightly oversized hole in the “swing arm” and seats in holes above in the top, and below in the apron.
No finish yet – my pal wanted to have his hands in it to whatever degree he could. The plan is Tung oil – I was glad to hear his choice, and look forward to the results.
I have to give a ton of credit to my buddy Dave at our hardware store / lumberyard. He runs their on-site woodshop. He resawed the cherry for top and leaf, and ran the cove and roundover for me. Without a good router table setup, I guess I was a little hesitant to screw up that part. Now I wish I could say I had done it myself, but good inspiration for next time (and to set up a router table). Anyway – thanks Dave!
I’ll post more when finish goes on.
