This was my grandmother’s Christmas present. Which on a side note traveled in my luggage to Michigan and was final assembled there.

Got the basic inspiration from plans on fine woodworking for a coffee table. I made it as a hall table and changed a few things. Quartersawn white oak all around and I even laminated the two sides of the legs so they looked quartersawn on all sides. I did the through wedged tenons (first time for me). I suggest practicing those suckers on scrap pieces first.

I did a little hand carving on the apron and fumed this with ammonia then finished with 3 part oil.

Wow.. looks ancient and modern at the same time.. Never really caught just how much drama fuming the wood can add until now

Very nicely done. Softening up the Arts & Crafts style always results in a nice looking piece. Thanks for the post
