These are a couple of mahogany dressing tables i built for my twin daughters. I built them from Norm’s New Yankee Workshop plans. I finished them using potassium dichromate to chemically age the natural tannins in the mahogany and then top coat with several coats of shellac. Thanks for looking.

I looked it up and I think it applies to this gorgeous pair of dressing tables, well done.

Beautifully executed tables! I’m sure they will both enjoy these for many, many years!
