Like always I’ve blogged this table at my other blog. But I found myself with a few days in which I had no teacher and no set project. So I built this table. It is made from Huon Pine ( Don’s Favorite timber ) and Peruvian Walnut. Here in Tasmanian the one timber they lack is a true dark timber. It was nice to work with a dark wood again.

Anyways I digress, the frames are all dovetailed together, hand cut of course. And the top is one solide piece. The top is 1200 mm x 300 mm x 20mm or for those of you that don’t speak metric about 48 inches x 12×3/4. The table top sit at 800mm or about 36 inches off the ground. The top is attached to the frames with slotted screww holes and screws, slots to allow wood movement. The top acts as its own rail to stablize the table from racking. I made this table and finished it in 10 hours. My goal was to just make something that might be a production type item. I really am please with this little table. Next week I hope to make a little end table to match it.

I hope you all enjoy, thanks

Wow, Kaleo, I didn’t have to check who the artist was – it has your signature written all over it. And, s you correctly state, my favorite timer – I can smell it from hear. Don’t you wish you could bottle that smell? And won’t you miss that golden butter-like wood when you return states-side?

Very nice work, Mate! I love the design and am looking forward to the end table versions.

that’s exactly what I was going to say, Don—at first glance I knew it was a “Kaleo” original.

Lovely (as always)
