Dimensions: 16” tall x 16” deep x 63” long.
Material: Cherry/Walnut/1/4” Aluminum rods
Finish: 4 coats Oil/Varnish blend (per FWW article this month)
I finished this table about 4 months ago and it’s been sitting waiting for finish. I guess I was dragging my feet because I had seriously burned out on it. Upon completing the design I dove in to production and assembly. As the table came together in real scale, I started to dislike the proportions. Although now finished, I’m getting more comfortable with it. The legs and short stretchers were originally cherry, but I botched the stretcher mortises and ended up cutting the legs down and reattaching walnut. The cherry got a little blotchy and that exaggerates the mismatched color on the top. Hopefully it will all darken to approx the same color. I did learn a lot designing and building it and that’s the goal for me a new woodworker.
