This summer I had the opportunity to take a precious wooden chest that was brought over from Africa by a fellows grand parents and build a Mission dining table of it. It was large enough to make a massive table top. I purchased some fantastic African Mahogany boards to build the base and made the table slides of heavy duty full extension drawer slides. To see more photos and story, check out my FB post here.
Cheers and happy Halloween LJ’s

Very nice project, well done. I especially like the through tenons and pegs.

You sir, are a craftsman….

Your joinery is par excellence

I fear this fantastic project is going to go largely unnoticed though, as your lead collage photo doesn’t show up well in thumbnail form.

One question if you would please, did you just use Tung oil? Or did you put something over it?

Thank you very much for the comments and input guys. The finish was 3 rubbed on coats of tung oil with one brushed on polyurethane. Sanded down with 220 and then 6 coats of wipe on poly.

I see where you marked one photo “Surprise inside” ... WHAT was that you found in there?

Beautiful table.
