This is my version of an L&JG Stickley 515 Octagonal Tabouret. I built it based on a picture that I found on the internet. The table top is 20” x 20 ” and it stands 24” tall. It is made from quartersawn white oak. The table features thru m&t joints for the cross braces and m&t joints for the feet. The finish is Transtint reddish brown dye followed by General Finishes Seal-A-Cell. The table is then glazed with Walnut gel stain and top coated with General satin Arm-R-Seal. The final coat is clear Briwax. For the edge molding on the top, I made a T molding that fits in slots cut in the top. The T moldings are glued at the corners and pin nailed from below.

A nice piece, for sure! I like the idea of t-moldings for the edge. It’ll never come apart!
