I thought I’d post a complete project on this table. I blogged about it as it was built – you can look at my blog and search for Queen Anne Side Table to get the details.
The able was my first attempt at a reproduction piece and a first attempt at cabriole legs. I enjoyed the build and I think that there may be a few more reproduction pieces in my woodworking future.
The wood is cherry with soft maple as a secondary wood for the drawer box. The finish is boiled linseed oil, followed by garnet shellac and then a top coat of semi gloss Arm-R-Seal. Finally, I rubbed the finish out with 0000 steel wool and then applied some paste wax (with steel wool for added protection.
