I was remiss in posting this project in a timely fashion, life seemed to get in the way recently. My apologies for being slow to post this for anyone that may have been following the blog.

One of my local lumber sources is an owner-operated unfinished furniture store that also sells lumber and some consignment items. After making the walnut and maple table for my cousin, he asked if I would be willing to make a similar piece for his showroom. I didn’t want to copy the previous piece and has found a good deal on some 8/4 mahogany for the legs. I have a strong inclination toward mid-century modern and Scandi style designs; I appreciate the clean lines that highlight the small details. Here is the result of that endeavor.

Nice job on that table, your choice of wood truly works to show off the detail. But I think you really just wanted to show off your Mustang and Camaro. LOL

Really nice coffee table! Also, looks like you have a couple of decent muscle cars too. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a classic Camero and Mustang in one garage.

That’s why he had to put a table between them or they would argue.

Great curly maple combination with mahogany. OK, someone else commented on the cars, so I won’t go on about how cool that is. Do tell more about the “clock face” above the fan and behind the piece. I cannot quite make out what that is.

Mustang was sold so my wife could buy a Harley, it was her car from high school. The Camaro was her mother’s.

The ‘clock face’ is an electronic dart board like you would find in a bar.
