This was my grandmother’s Christmas present. Which on a side note traveled in my luggage to Michigan and was final assembled there.
Got the basic inspiration from plans on fine woodworking for a coffee table. I made it as a hall table and changed a few things. Quartersawn white oak all around and I even laminated the two sides of the legs so they looked quartersawn on all sides. I did the through wedged tenons (first time for me). I suggest practicing those suckers on scrap pieces first.
I did a little hand carving on the apron and fumed this with ammonia then finished with 3 part oil.
