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.

This turned out great. I really enjoyed following this project on the blog and it is great to see the finished product. The finish turned out excellent on this. Great pictures by the way!

I’m enjoying the guitar you are doing now too. You will need to post a video when it is done of you playing it so we can hear how it sounds.

All I can say is it looks like you’ve been building these for about 40 years.

I think you got the most out of that tree Mark. I’d also like to compliment your photography. The pictures of the piece in its natural environment are just stunning.

This is a very nice table. Cherry is such a gorgeous wood and you did it proud with this piece.

Nice photos, too.
