Here is the finished I table that I posted in my blog earlier a few weeks back. The finish is just a few coats of shellac (blonde) pre-mixed stuff that I bought from a hardware supplier, its given the table a nice glow without making it too yellow. The Iroko inset top had about 4 coats and in the right light has a nice satin sheen to it.

The through tenons were facetted to add a little interest. This is the first product of using the new workbench and it’s not comeout too bad at all, i’m rather pleased with it.

The colors are just so striking and rich. A table worthy of a museum…beautiful.

Thank you all for your kind comments. I’m rather pleased with how it’s come out as a lot of the details were worked out during the build. I’m not much one for minute planning :-)

At least my good lady now has somewhere to put her cup of tea!

Ok, then, it’s very nice “Tea” table. It really is striking in the richness of the woods. Excellent

beauty. You’re only telling people it’s a place for a tea cup – but you’re really not allowing anything on it, right? ;)

Scottb – I made a matching coaster (Do you call them that in the states?) so that the hot cup doesn’t damage the top.

Gorgeous table Byron, I remember the blog. I’m glad you made the matching coaster, I’d loose my mind first time I saw a drink sitting on it ;)

What a great little table. I like tour choice of contrasting woods, as well as the grain on the top.
