Here’s a sofa table I made for my mother. It is made out of red oak with a colonial maple stain applied in an attempt to match her current furniture. I don’t think it’s quite the same but I haven’t delivered it yet to see. It will be close enough. I finished it with several coats of polyurethane. I used my recently constructed loose mortis and tenon machine throughout and it made this project very quick and easy. Nothing fancy with the design, my mother wanted something simple. I didn’t want do traditional spindles on the sides so I came up with the design seen here. I’m not sure I totally like them but I don’t hate them either. This was a very fun project.

Really nice design , especially the end pieces. Beautiful build. Post a photo of your mortise machine, please. I have recently acquired one and am still learning to use it to it’s full extent.

Thanks, exelectrician! Look in my projects and you’ll find my mortising machines there. It’s used for loose tenon joinery.

Good job. I like your end pieces as well.

Excellent job on this. The superb grain selection doesn’t go unnoticed.

Thanks, Red. As soon as I saw the figure on the center board of the table top I knew that was where it would go to be the focal point.

It simple but looks really good and well made. Like the accents on the sides. I’m sure she likes it. Great work!
