Built this at William Ng’s woodworking school in LA a couple of years ago. Finally got around to assembling and finishing it and am very happy with the way it turned out. Mohagony with ebony accents. Hard maple for the drawers. I finished it with 5 coats of boiled lindseed oil and will put a coat of wax on the top after it has a chance to harden.

Was a great class – William really knows his stuff. I’d say the main takeaway from the class was the precision – he typically measures down to 1-2 hundreth of an inch. Of course, its a bit easier to do when your machines cost thousands of dollars vs the hundreds for mine….. Also, he uses a lot of jigs, whichi guess makes sense when you are building the same thing over and over. He also taught us how to properly use scrapers which is a huge time saver vs sanding. Was an overall great experience!

Looks like a great table. I really like the breadboard details.

That’s really quite nice. I’m a Canadian, to us, really quite nice is as good a compliment as you can give someone.

Hell, I’ll go out on a limb and risk being enthusiastic, WELL DONE!

Outstanding! Beautiful work! I especially like your handles—they really turned out very nice.

Looks like you really got a lot out of the class. It’s sure reflected in your build. Beautiful job.
