This is a rustic style with an art-deco combo. The highly finished red gum top has a glass finisn in poly-urathane with distressed edging. The remarkable graining as well as the worm tracking make up the asthetic appeal. The magazine rack underneath is of red alder. The top is a full 1 7/8” thick quarter-sawn red gum (satin walnut) The name satin walnut comes from the National Forestry Service. As you can tell, there is alot of figuring in the american red gum and that is the reason I like working with it. This table weighs about 70 lbs. The width is 16 1/2’ x 15 1/2” high x 58” in length. The tenons in the legs were made with one on those tenon makers and the rest is dowled together making it with no metal fasteners, screws or nails.
