This project is the second in a series of tables. This nested set (smaller table not shown) are made of walnut, with a curly maple perimeter inlay.
The project is very similar to my other set. This set is larger in table surface, but shorter. These were made to go in my Mother-In-Law’s den, at the end of a sofa. Other tables used there were always a bit too large, extending into the traffic lane, or too narrow to feel completely stable on their carpet. I had started another design for this space, but when I completed my wife’s set, her mother said this would be perfect for that space.
The triangular shape is very stable, the ability to nest completely keeps it out of the traffic lane, but also allows for it to be pulled out just a bit for more table surface in place, or moved completely for another table for a guest’s drink.
Finish is Arm-R-Seal, with several coats to build the finish, sanded back and coated again to a flat surface but not mirror/glass such as a pore-filled finish. This way, the full grain is seen, but will be very durable and easy to clean.
