I had a little 4/4 walnut laying around, and I had two guest chairs in my office at work just crying out for small table to separate them, so this is the result.
The first for me on this piece was staining walnut. Walnut is pretty much my favorite wood, and I just love how beautiful the color is the minute you wipe on a clear finish. But in this case I was matching the red mahogany finish of the rest of the office furniture, and I was pleasantly surprised at how well the walnut took the stain. (At least it’s NOT paint, Ms. Debbie! <g>
Dimensions are roughly 16×20. The legs are each glued up from 2 pieces of 4/4 stock, with the fluting done using a router table and stop block. Finish is multiple coats of wipe-on poly.
