This was a learning experience: it included finger joints to joint the walnut, dowels to join the shelf, biscuits to join the maple top and shelf and finally a mortice/tenet joint and dowels to join the maple top to the walnut breadboard ends. Finished with lacquer and a wax rub out.

Very nice Sean. Great wood choices and the finish should be durable. Good work!

Beautiful table and you did a great job with the finishing. Very nice. I love the contrast of the woods.

Had to favorite this one. Perfect amount of contrast coupled with simple, safe design. “Doable” by the average LJ member. Elegant enough to be placed in the nicest of homes in America.
