This table I redid for my aunt was a diamond in the rough. It had about 5 layers of different colored paint over top of the beautiful solid walnut base. The top was venered (and falling apart) and the side aprons were maple, so i made new of both. My uncle is a professional painter, so he’ll be finishing it himself. Critiques welcome… thanks for looking!

As soon as I had all the paint stripped, I thought to myself, “I really should have taken a before picture.” haha just trust me… it wasn’t pretty. Thanks for the kind words.

Nice well done job. That’s a pretty table. Your should measure it and also make a full size template of the legs and start a workbook on it so…if you ever wanted to make a reproduction you would have everything in your workbook to reproduce it.

Sometimes I wonder, if I’m the only one that keeps a workbook. All my daughters keep one and it amazes me sometimes what they’ve measured and logged in those workbooks to reproduce at any given time.
