Taking inspiration from Damian Penney’s beautiful Whisky Table here on LJ and wanting to use up some “scrap” wood. I also had wanted to experiment with cutting a circular top with a router. The piece is the latest in a collection that I am trying to put together for pieces that would be available for sale. This piece measures 16”dia and stands 18” tall. My thought is that this could be available in several sizes. The legs are walnut and the top and stretchers are zebrawood. The top is glued up from 3 pieces. the stretchers are have a half lap joint and is pinned with Gaboon Ebony. The legs are dowelled to the top and are capped with an ebony plug. I used a through mortise to attach the legs to the stretchers and also pinned with ebony. The finish is 2 coats of tung oil followed by 3 coats of whip on poly and 2 coats of wax.
