Cherry Coffee Table

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.
