Howdy, Folks! This is my first project posting at Lumberjocks, and I’m happy to say…I’m pretty proud of this one. I needed to replace an old, shabby table we had in our front hall, and thought this design would fit perfectly. The dimensions are 45”x15”x28”. This is the first time I’ve incorporated any type of shaped component into a project. The legs flare out just enough to give this table an elegant, lighter look. The most important piece of praise came from the wife. She loves it!
I used a TransTint dye solution to darken the maple, and then sanded down with 320. After wiping on BLO and then dewaxed shellac, I wiped on 4 coats of General Finishes gloss Arm-R-Seal. If I were to do it again, I might go with a satin finish, but…the piece’s owner likes a glossy finish. :-)
Thanks for looking!
