Oak and oak plywood hall table with woven amdrosia maple doors and inlay. A lof of “firsts” on this one. First attempt at a piece of “furniture”. I’m not an experienced finisher and dont have a HPLV sprayer so used a few coats of minwax stain/poly blend with steel wool in between coats to make it easier on myself.
Also first attempt using google sketch up. Ended up purchasing a video tutorial which was a huge help. This hall table was designed to fit a finch cage I built for my wife. (Cage is “working prototype ” out of poplar and i will post once the final is built). Doors were intended to be raised panel (again, FIRST time with cope and stick) but I made a last minute design change and used 1/16th” strips that I wove to make the “panels”. I liked this look better. Had fun laying out the pieces to created the accidental designs on the panels.
First attempt at tapered legs (only part below cabinet bottom is tapered). My teen daughter called it “legit”, my wife is o.k. keeping it in the hall, and the birds are still chirping. That’s good enough for me!
PS: Anyone know a good way to get iphone pictures or ipad pictures onto LJ?
