My son wanted me to build him a table for his new chess set, so after some thought, with the chess set being a bit fancy I decided on cabriole legs which I had not yet attempted and something I wanted to try. They are challenging, time consuming, taking lots of patience, and I loved every minute. Used white ash, Early American stain, and a Tung oil finish. This is the first time I have used Tung oil on a project and I really like the finish, easy to apply and gives off a nice hue to the stain.

Hi Doug,

This is a beautiful table. The cabriole legs add a nice detail to the project.

Thanks for the post.

Great Legs! (whistle whistle…) Nothing says first attempt about it. I’m assuming a big band saw for the curved cuts?

Very professional. Your work is excellent – a real craftsman.
