My neighbor asked me for advice on building a table and a few days later we were in my shop building one. I tried to talk him into doing the whole thing out of cherry, but he insisted on a tile top. Looking at the finished product, i think the tile has a nice look and i am very pleased with it. Everything else with the exception of the plugs is cherry.
Originally the apron was going to be curved, but we liked the figure in the cherry, and decided to keep it rectangular.
The legs are tapered on all four sides.(First time i got to use the taper jig) The joinery is mortise and tennon, glued and screwed. I made some square plugs out of walnut to cover the screw holes. After drilling the pilots for the screws i chiseled a 1/4” recess for the plugs.
Finish—1 coat tung 6 coats wiping poly 1 coat paste wax
We are working on ideas for a bench and some chairs to go with it.
Thanks for looking
