Hi, I have just completed a small end table as a present for my sister, Kim. She loves wooden furniture and was delighted with it when I gave it to her yesterday. The table top and shelf are cut from a single piece of waney edged pippy oak that was in a woodyard sale. I was very pleased with the effect of the grain and the “pips”. I must thank fellow LJ (and yorkshireman) yorkshirestewart for advice in how to fill these which was carried out using a mixture of fine sawdust and epoxy. I found that a very stiff mix gave a darker appearance and a more natural effect. Very small pips were filled in with a dark wax filler stick. I finished with ARM-R Seal urethane wiping varnish, giving the top at least 10 coats for a very durable finish.

Looks very nice

How is it constructed?
