Here’s the table ive been working on for the last month or so down in the wobbly leg workhsop. Its made of #2 common walnut and ambrosia maple. Joinery is mortise and tenon. Tenons are hand cut and trimmed with a shoulder plane. Mortises were drilled with forstners bits and cleaned up with chisels. The finish is 2 brushed on coats of Arm-A-Seal, 2 coats wiped on, and a buffed out coat of paste wax. The table measures 32” x 20”. Its a little smaller than your normal coffee table thus that name “Espresso”. Thanks for checkin out what ive been doin.
Edit: Browsing through my favortires I forgot to give credit where credit is due on this one .. the inspiration was from LJ DaveRose’s “Chunky Coffee Table” .. http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57638.
