Recently, I blogged some renders and Sketchup screenshots of a sort of Mission style table I was making for a friend out of ribbon Sapele. You can see that here.
I picked out some nice boards..from Woodcraft…

Legs were laminated out of rips from the same board…

Top and shelves in the clamps…

Cutting the tapers on the legs…


I used some plywood spacers to set the distances, and MDF shims to center the rails




Cutting the bevels on the top..

Sapele cuts, machines and burns like Cherry…

Side stiles in..I custom cut each one for a nice tight fit.. and glued and pinned them in place with a 23Ga headless pinner…

Assembled, sanded to 220, and tacked..ready for finish..

The table was finished with General Finishes Seal-A-Cell clear, and three coats of wipe on semi-gloss poly.




I ended up with some leftover materiel, so I made him a matching center channel shelf same bevel as the table top ..

Overall, I was happy with the design. I made some mistakes on the build, that will go into the “don’t do it that way again” file. Ribbon Sapele is beautiful, and really nice to work with..it burt easy but machined, routed and sanded really well.

Beautiful. Looks like a good size to hold woodworking magazines as well.
