Dad wanted a tall, sofa table/dining table height table to set in front of a window. Figured cherry. Mahogany Watco Danish Oil then Walnut Danish oil with wipe on poly and wax on top. I bought the cherry spindels. Beaded sides and bottom skirt. Dovetailed drawer.

Mike, this is a gorgeous table. I love the wood that you chose for the build. Cherry is my favorite but I have not had the pleasure to work with wood that has this much figure and character. I am sure your father was pleased with the table.

Nice project and that wood looks amazing in the pictures … I bet it’s even better in person.

Wow – this piece is well designed and built and the figure in the cherry is amazing. I really like the top and drawer front. Great eye for choice and selection that of figure that really makes this table extraordinary.

Thanks. It was one of those pieces of wood that makes you go…Wow…and you take it home. There’s a local guy named Muterspaw that has some really great stuff. I love to go dig through his piles of great wood. I tend to bring home more than I need, but the tables and shadow boxes tend to bring some nice comments.
