Finished the last piece of the living room set. The coffee table. Pictures 4 and 5 were taken while the 5th coat was still wet and before the marble inlay was set into the top.
This piece was by far my favorite piece to build (and admire) I almost hate to see it leave.

It’s a real nice table and looks like it was a fun project.

Thanks guys. The total project has been a long haul (nearly a year) Had a lot of fun designing and building all 6 pieces though.

Bittersweet is probably the best way to explain the end of any project Don. But as i’m sure you well know, time waits for no one so on to the next project. Designing and building a new kitchen for my bride. This one’s gonna take a while! Have a couple of out door projects also once the weather breaks. So much for my 6 weeks of vacation this year! LOL

A very handsome table Ross. I can see why you would want to keep it.

That’s a family heirloom for sure. Very nice smooth work and I see local grown oak. Nice job… and leave time in your life for family. I didn’t tackle our kitchen renovation project until this past year and it took 8 months to do. As you know, I’m a retired Teamster so I had lots of time on my hands – and I didn’t build the cabinets. My wife loved a set she found and with the price of lumber, it wasn’t that much more expensive to buy them.

But, very nice job – my wife likes it too – so that may be a project for me after I build a dresser for my grand daughter.

A beautiful table. That oak and marble look great together and your finish appears flawless. I especially like the joinery you used.

Thanks again to all. It means a lot when coming from fellow L/J’rs. Of coarse it means a lot coming from a client but most of the time they have little clue about the amount of work that goes into a piece.
