This was a custom commission, modeled from a Finewoodworking Mahogany table shown in picture 5. The customer wanted both Cherry and Walnut to be used and to incorporate 2 drawers into the design. I glued the top with dominoes to aid in alignment, I also used dominoes with elongated holes for the breadboard ends due to time and budgetary constraints. I joined each leg to apron with 4 dominoes, this proved to make an extremely strong joint very quickly. I cut the half blind dovetail drawers with a Leigh Super 18 Dovetail Jig.

Finish was Minwax Wipe-on Satin Poly on base and drawers. Brush on satin for the top followed by 2 coats of paste wax.
