This is a table that we built for our wedding. We wanted to have a unity candle but the stair landing where we wanted to have the ceremony did not have enough room for any of the tables that we had.

So… We made one exactly the size we wanted.

The table is made from solid Red Oak and is finished with a danish oil and a poly top coat. the skirt is assembled with mortise and tenon joints. The tenons are mitered on the ends to keep them from touching on the inside. The lower rails are also mortise and tenon joints. This was the first time that we had done them.

I am not sure if it fits but we are calling it a Mission or Arts and Crafts style table.

This is a really nice table. With this being your first piece let me say that you are in the right place. This speaks volumes about your craftmanship. The joints all look tight and the finish is excellent.

Thanks for sharing.
