This was a fun project for a new client. It is 30” tall, 36” wide and 18” deep.
Some of the fun parts on this build were the turned legs and the Copper bottom Belly-Drawer.
I think the client is going to put this by her Lazyboy recliner.
The finish is 3 coats of oil based Armour Seal. The final sand was with #2400 grit cloth. It is as smooth as can be.
Good lathe guys would have fallen in the floor laughing at how long it took me to turn each leg. BUT, I am pretty fast at the rest of it! That is my justification for the day.
Thanks for looking,
Michael

Here is what I (my wife) thinks—-
This is a baking table. The copper bottomed drawer held the flour.
I’m going to go with this, until better comes along.

The pot belly drawer makes me laugh. Nice work man.

The belly/flour drawer is a definite attention getter. Are the spaces next to the drawers dead space?
A very unique piece. Nice work once again.
My lathe skills are on the sub-par level, I know the time it takes to white knuckle a piece.

Another great project. That is a great bottom drawer. Nice work.

Thanks, Ivan. I really have been working—I just have not created anything very interesting lately.
I have a couple of projects in the shop now that have possibilities of a LJ posting. We’ll see.
Thanks for your kind words,
Michael

I really like it. I just think the curved draw at the bottom should also have Oak veneer to match the rest of the cabinet. Or the copper should also be polished. Just my 2 cents.

-- Have a great day.

thanks, Grossa

This table was made to match an antique baker’s table they already own. The copper bottom drawer was used to hold flour. Now they have a matched pair.
