This is my second attempt at this table. The finish and the pictures turned out much better on this one.

The table is made from solid african mahogany. The top and all of the shelves are all individual pieces of mahogany with no glue joints. The top is from a 18” wide piece of 8/4 that I milled down to 1 1/2”. The legs were cut from a separate piece of 6/4.

The finish consists of an oil based general finishes stain with a semi-gloss Arm-R-Seal top coat.

The Asian design is very sleek – nice job! I love how Arm-R-Seal looks on African Mahoghany

RT31 The joinery is all pretty simple. I used an integral mortise and tenon to attach the legs to the table top. The mortises were cut using a router with a spiral bit, a bushing and a template. The tenons were cut on the table saw with a dado blade.

There are dados cut in the legs to receive the shelves. You can easily cut these on the table saw or with a jig and your router.

The legs are rough cut on the bandsaw and then I used a template and a template bit on my router to clean them up.

Looks very nice and also looks like a difficult build…....I applaud you.
Well done.
