I made this table for my wife after she gave our Dimes table to our daughter. She missed it so I had my son in law measure it over the phone and here it is. Maple base,pine hand planed top.

Thanks Don and hf, I love to hand plane and leave a lot of tool marks. It really gives a nice aged look to the piece. I finish all my stuff with dye stain and oil rubbing varnish. Gives that great soft hand rubbed look. Thanks again.

Beautiful table. What dye did you use, and how did you keep it from blotching on the (white?)pine?

Hey Jarod, I used General Finishes Vintage Cherry. It’s a water based dye and I think that helps with the blotching that you usually get with an oil based stain or dye. I just put it on with one of those sponge brushes and then rub off the excess with a paper towel. Then I put on 3 or 4 coats of Minwax Antique Oil Finish. Just follow the directions on the can. Just a hint when rubbing the oil varnish don’t rub to hard or you’ll rub it all off.

I just looked at this after you posted the pair of tea tables today. I can see some similarities in the legs of this table and the new tables. This one looks like something I would expect in my grandfather’s house 40 years ago. Very nice cozy feel to it. Just right! I want to sit there and eat breakfast with my wife.
