My second attempt at a federal period card table. Pretty much like the first one but using different skills and different woods. I have never done any heavy veneer work until this. It would have been nice to have had a vacuum press. Starburst veneer tabletop.
Primary: Walnut, maple, walnut burl veneer, maple stringing, holly & ebony stringing, walnut & maple banding, lacewood veneer
Secondary: Poplar, 3/4” baltic birch ply, qtr sawn sycamore
Finished with 3 coats of Target Coatings Emtech EM8000cv semi-gloss waterborne varnish.
The waterborne finish went on just fine with no killer fumes to deal with. Time will tell how it hold up.
Thanks for looking.
