This coffee table changed as it progressed along. It was supposed to have legs over the top of the table like woodrookie2’s (curley cherry table). It ended as a nearly traditional mission style table. No stain, just three coats can spray lacquer. ( I like the light natural look, it should darken with age.) The M/T all done on the table saw with strips of inlay, made that part real easy.

Love the table…

love Mission Style….

I stripped and refinished a round top cherry end table for my parents exactly the same way 25 years ago…. and when they retired to AZ and sold the old house… I got to take it home.

It did darken some….. very pretty.

Mission style and cherry. A tough combo to beat and my kind of project. You did a nice job and it will age beautifully.

Sweet table Edward. The use of a bit sap wood is well done and the detail on your spindles and legs is enviable.

Nice job.
