Cherry Dining Table

The top of this dining table is all common cherry. I arranged the boards so there wouldn’t be any grain matching so that the uniqueness of each board would be showcased. Cracks and knots are filled with black epoxy, clear epoxy and black CA glue. Now I have to start designing chairs. I coated it with Arm R Seal. I found this design while watching Ishitani Furniture on Youtube.

Simple straight lines forming an elegant piece. It lets the wood speak for itself. Beautifully crafted.

Beautiful craftsmanship, really like the butterfly key to hold the end grain together. And that floating edge.

Beautiful work! I’m working on a floating top table with castle joints for leg/aprons. Did you make a TS jig to cut the joint?

Jimi, glad you like it!
I used my bandsaw to cut the joints in the table legs. Cut it close and finish with planes and files. I used a 3/4 inch blade with 4 tpi and a stop block for uniform cuts on the bandsaw. Moving slowly gave me a smooth cut that only needed a little finessing.

I really like how it is a stylish piece of furniture, yet the real character of the wood remains.

That is a great design. It is very subtle and beautiful. Outstanding work on the joints and the appearance of the top. Looks perfect.
