the first picture is the completed end table its what they call civil war style . i made this end table for my wife using scrap spalted walnut i bought from a sawmill as odd lots. i came up with the design in my head
the 2nd picture shows the spalting of the black walnut i used as accent in the top, the top as well as the box base has 1 coat of boiled linseed oil then 3 coats of gloss polly with 320 sanding in between each coat
3rd pic shows another view of the spalting of the top
4th pic shows the side of the leg , the foot is joined to the side using mortise and tenon joints notice the contracting colors between the dark and the white.
the 5th and last picture shows the joints i used to put the main box that holds the table together the joints are what i call a glue box joint
i really enjoyed making this it was a very simple yet elegant design this project used lumber that otherwise would have wasted hope you enjoy i look forward to your comments
