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.

Regards,

Rob

Sanded to 4000 grit?? WOW, it must be as smooth as mirror! Great work, Rob.

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.
