This is a hall table approx 1’wide, 4’ long and 30” high.

The legs were cut on the bandsaw freehand using using a template scribed onto the timber. These legs were then cleanred up with a Festool RO150FEQ rotary sander. All joints are Domino, 6×40mm. The finish is Scandinavian Oil used as desribed in another project. Don, your help was invaluable in creating this.

I now officially declare the LOML utterly spoilt. This sits next to the Laundry/cat bathroom door!!

Hey, Rob, you flatter me. I was just an observer. Thanks for reviewing your finishing technique with me. I had previously finished wood similarly, but must confess got a little lazy going through all the grades of paper. I was also reminded once again that using a Festool Rotex Sander, one only needs a few passes over the surface of the wood.

Your table looks great!

I just posted a box using your finishing process, and I’m stoked, Mate!

Awesome table, Rob! I really like your choice of timber, and the nice taper you put on the legs. The taper really makes the top appear to float. I probably would have not tapered the legs, and ended up with something graceless looking :). Good work, keep them coming!

I think we Americans need to charter a large boat and go get some of that down under wood! Oil…who needs oil…maybe we should get out of the middle east and go made Australia safe for democracy.
