Been working on this table for a while. It’s a drafting table, built out of ribbon sapele. The table top is resawn sapele veneer. The legs have face grain on all four sides. They are glued together with lock miter joints, with stopped chamfers down their lengths. A little Stickley influence there.
Finish is a combination of two coats of two mixed Transtint dyes, dewaxed orange shellac, and 6 wiped on coats of Waterlox, with sanding in between when needed with 600 grit to remove dust nibs.
The top has the addition of 6 sprayed on coats of Target Coatings EM6000 rubbed out to a semi-gloss finish with Abranet up to 1000 grit, followed by Abralon up to 3000 grit, and finally polished with Menzerna 2L Pre-polish until a semi-gloss finish was obtained.
