These tables are made out of solid Red Oak. Stained with a Red Mahoganny. Clear coat. Then I applied a furniture polish. A lot of fun to make. I really like working with Oak and polish is so very classic and the sheen is unbeatable.

I like how the taper goes from the bottom to top instead of the traditional taper. It has a quite noticeable visual effect.
