This project came up when a friend asked for a small table to put by her back door. She wanted somewhere to throw her keys and mail when she came home. I had 4 turned red oak spindles that my wife’s grandpa had given me several years ago i figured would work well for legs. I think the spindles were actually from a stair banister. I was trying to come up with a wood that would look good with red oak legs and finally decided on black walnut. Since the table was small i only ended up using 1 board to make the table. I really liked how the front edge had a stripe of pale sapwood that contrasted the rest of the top. I didn’t plan that just a happy accident. Finish was 3 coats of lacquer then paste wax on the top. My friend was extremely pleased with how it turned out. Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the fix htl. I took the picture on my phone and for some reason they saved sideways.
