Well I finally completed it.

10 coats of tung oil on the top and 6 on the legs and stretcher.
The assembled weight is approximately 200 lbs.

See the embedded post for construction details.
Please forgive the poor quality photos, the table is too heavy for me to take it outside to get better pictures.

Very, very nice design. The angled top edges and corners really set this piece off. The bread board ends look super with the angles on them. I like the patience used to apply enough tung oil to get that lustrous finish you have as well. Congratulations on a job very well done!

Very nice work. I am truly impressed. You brought out the true beauty of the Mahogany. You have inspired me… I think it is time to make a mahogany box with ebony inlay…

Now you need the matching chairs!!!

Wow, I really like the look of that table, I made a similar one from maple years ago. I really like the way the ends look on your’s. Keep up the good work.
