This mission style display table was designed to display a large art sculpture. Mahogany was used to construct the table. To determine a visually pleasing spacing for the spindles the table was first dry assembled and various combinations of spindle spacing and widths were tried

Roger Gaborski,
Beautifully done! The design and choice of wood worked out very well. I so acustomed to seeing these similar styles done using Q/S/W/O. I really like the mahogany on your table. What type finish did you use? Congratulations on an excellent design and build.

The finish is one coat of General Finishes Brown Mahogany Gel Stain and several coats of Arm-R-Seal Semi-gloss. I usually don’t use stains, but I found the GFs gel to be a very easy gel to apply.

Great looking table! Looks like you got the spacing/size of the spindles just right.
