After 2 months of work it’s finally complete! It was a long hard road, a lot harder than I had initially thought it would be, to tell you the truth.
If you haven’t seen the blog of its construction you can see it here.
It’s in 41 parts covering about 2 months work.
Everything is explained in the blog but for those not wanting to go through the whole thing here are the highlights.
The chairs are solid African mahogany as well as the legs for the table. The table top is veneered with Mottled Makore and curly maple on a substrate of two 1/2” (12mm) pieces of Russian birch plywood glued together.
The top is trimmed with Wenge and Santos Mahogany. The apron for the table is also Santos Mahogany.
All in all I had a great time building it, but at the same time I wouldn’t do it again. I don’t have to :-).
The only thing left to do on it is to fill in the oval spaces on the upper backs of the chairs. My next project will take care of that. You’ll see it later.
In the last two picture you can see the two happy customers.
