This is a set of nesting Arts and Crafts style tables in QSWO. The plan came from Wood Magazine (DP-0015). The large table is 20” w x 20” d x 29” h. The only changes that I made to the plan was to add an additional rail on the small table and I eliminated the cut outs on the wide slats that Wood likes to use (did not match the settles). All of the stock used was 4/4 QSWO. The slats are re-sawed and the legs are laminated. The frame construction is all M&T joints. The tops are attached with table irons. I sanded out to 150 mesh before finishing. QSWO does not finish well if you sand too fine (tends to polish the wood). The finish is General Finishes Candlelite gel stain and then top coated with three coats of Arm-R-Seal (satin, sanded to 320 mesh between coats). After the last top coat, I sanded to 600 mesh and finished with clear Briwax.
