One of my all time favorite projects designed for a client back in 2012. Made from a variety of species : maple , poplar , pine , oak , and cherry. Finished with water based products with a semi-gloss water based polyurethane. My favorite part of this project was the equalizing table slides that accommodated another 24in of removable table leaves to turn the table into an oval shape. Used brass clasps to hold the table together. What a fun project.

really nice. Tell me about the pedestal, how did you make it, reed it, nice work on it.
The finish looks real nice and even for the different woods I see.

Why did you use so many species of wood?

CharlesA , I think a mistake that many woodworkers make is they think everything must match. I specifically choose species for the intended purposes. Hardwood for the top , maple. Softer wood for the skirt so I could bend it. And so on and so on. in addition the different species make the final product more interesting to look at. As you can tell from the photo the finished shade is almost identical. Thanks for your question.
