Hi everyone,

Here’s some pics of a coffee table I made. It’s made of Tasmanian Blackwood and finished with Organoil Hard Burnishing oil, which was wet sanded to 4000g then wiped off with a cotton cloth. It is approx1.2m x 0.6m x .45m. It has two drawers, which have a groove routed along the bottom edge to act as handles.

This looks really good Rob. I like these kinds of projects. You boys down under seem to have access to some really nice hard woods that we just don’t see here in Canada. A trip to your home land is definitly on my bucket list. Once again, very nice work.

Fantastic looking table. Nicely Done !
I’m starting to wish I had been more into woodwork when I still lived in Australia. So many more choices of wood than here in Croatia.
