I made this coffee table to go with another previously posted. The main frame is Sheoak and the centre panel is a desert timber called Beef Wood. The legs have an inlay which is curly Jarrah. I was really proud of this and the other hexagonal table, as all the mortise and tenon joints pulled up tight. No gaps.

The finish is Wattyl spray lacquer.

Beautiful work!
Did the color come from a stain or from the wood?
What is sheoak, as being in the northern hemisphere I don’t think we have that here.

Thanks for the comments. That is sheoaks natural colour. It is a very stable timber, very little movement, fantastic for furniture making. Sheoak is a hard wood, but it does have needle like leaves like a softwood.

Have your say...
