Here is the finished version of my interpretation of George Nakashima’s Frenchman’s Cove II. I spent a lot of time poring through images on the web to determine the dimensions of the parts and ended up making the base a little “heavier” than usual. The basic dimensions are 78”x36”x29”. The thickness of the joined slab is 1 1/8”. It is made entirely of Walnut save for the butterfly keys that are from Zebrawood. You can get all the details on my blog-http://brokenriverjoinery.wordpress.com/. The finish is Tung oil. I applied three coats to the entire piece and two extra coats on the top. In between each I buffed it with #0000 steel wool.
Thanks for looking.
