Well, it took me way longer to complete this than id like to admit, but its done now. Walnut and Sapele were used, with the legs and drawer utilizing the walnut sapwood as well. Started out from rough sawn beginnings.

Cleaned it all up and started planing the portions…

Finishing was long and tedious… Home made varnish, wipe on… Too many coats to count. And finished off with 0000 steel wool with Mohawks Wool lube.

Glad its done… And on to the next :)

Beautiful table. The door panels and the drawer bottom panel are especially notable.

Amazing how much work can go into these projects. Think what this would have cost to have made. This is a lovely well done piece.

Have your say...
