Maple Side Table

October, 2012—I had some maple left overs and decided to make a small table. After the top was made I found these nice legs at the Sarasota Architectural Salvage store, and also bought the decorative carvings on the ends.

This has a light amber stain followed by multiple coats of satin polyurethane. Many thanks to my woodworking pal, Sawdust Tom, for the suggestions on how to do the trim. My wife says it turned out nice.

Well done, Art, well done.

An excellent compilation of pieces and parts.

Maple is not easy to find in FL. Nice job on the table Art.

That turned out quite well. I like the contrasting trim. You shoulda lied about making the legs and medallions :)

That is beautiful Art. Woods are very classy together, along with the design of coarse.
