A pair of quartersawn white oak mission style tables for the living room. The design is a modified Stickley Harvey Ellis. I changed the sizes slightly to better fit our space, and the inlays were replaced with the much simpler mortise pattern. I added the thru tenons to the cross braces to regain some of the lost character. The cross braces are connected to each other via a pinned half lap, and screws thru the braces connect the tops and shelves. The coffee table is 38” diameter and 19.5” tall. The side table is 26” diameter and height.

The finish is Jeff Jewitt’s recipe for Stickley Fayetteville. It utilizes a water based transtint dye, General finishes seal-a-cell, General finishes gel stain, and 2-7 coats (depending on surface) of a home mixed wipe on urethane. The photos are in several different lighting conditions, and the last photo best represents the true color.
