Here’s a coffee table I made for my charming wife. The design is based on a coffee table from the Stickley Mission Collection. This is my third project. I really learned some valuable skills (some of them from LJs, some of them by error). Next project: two end tables to match.
The table is made out of quarter sawn white oak I purchased from a local sawmill.
The table is 17 inches tall, 36 inches wide and 44 inches long.
Mortise and tenon construction throughout.
I used figure eights to attach the top.
The finishing routine:
1. Sanded to 220 grit
2. Applied one coat of custom mix of Minwax.
3. Applied one sealer coat of thinned Minwax Fast Drying Polyurethane.
4. Applied one coat of General Finishes Brown Mahogany Gel Stain.
5. Applied 4 coats of Minwax Fast Drying Polyurethane
