The project started as a rescue mission for the stained glass panel which was from a large window being removed from a Victorian House. The owner wanted to preserve the history so I made a frame from Oak that had been part of the fireplace lintel. Problem was the panel was really heavy with all the lead. I had some 4 by 2 lying around so made a pretty basic table frame with bridle joints and through wedged tenons into the top frame. The legs had tenons cut that sat in mortices in the feet. A rabbet was routed into the legs stopped at the dimensions of the oak frames and the Oak panels fitted in. I shaped the 4 by 2 frame and set a ply panel in a rabbet in the top frame. This was glued and screwed in. I then took some Tulip wood and Idigbo strips and created the inlay pattern. This then had a 5mm rebate cut and a Boxwood inlay glued in to complete the top.
The frame was painted in a black oil based finish and varnished. The top was sanded down to a 320 grit and finished with four coats of shellac sanding between each one. Finally buffed up with paste wax.

It turned out way better than I thought it would to be honest. Thanks for the feedback

Very stylish… Incredible how timber manages to come to attention with a little shellacking!

However, what happens in four handed?

Very nice combination of two types of craftmanships – glas and woodworking.
