This hall table was a commission. It is 52” long and 34” high. The one board top is 12” wide. I used mortise and tenon joinery. It is made from ash with a golden oak stain. It has 3 coats of wipe-on poly on the whole table and an extra 3 coats on the top and shelf with a 320 grit light sand between coats. This job enabled me to purchase a much needed hollow chisel mortising machine.

Nice table, Dan. I was thinking about getting a mortising machine too. Guess now I don’t have to…lol. Good work.

I think I might borrow some ideas from your project and make one for my parent’s house.
