My first real wood table I’ve ever built, not all that fancy but I think it’s neat. I made it to replace an existing tabletops or my father in law. I used tiger wood decking, it actually had a real low moisture content and kept costs down.

This is nice.
I have not seen Tiger wood before, do you know its botanical name ? It looks far too nice for decking.

What finish did you use on it ? It really brought that Tiger to life : )

Thanks guys!
@ ollie, I copied this off wikipedia:
Tigerwood may refer to several species of trees: Coula edulis, a tree species native to tropical western Africa from Sierra Leone to Angola Lovoa trichilioides, a tree species found in Africa Goncalo alves, several species found in Brazil

@ Dusty, i followed someone elses suggestion on here and went with danish oil, then general finishes arm-r-seal urethane top coat. Turned out pretty well I think. Next time I want to try their polycrylic since it’s water based it should clean up easily if used in a spray gun.

Wow! I love it! I made a tote and knob with this stuff and really liked how this stuff can be worked. Nice job!

Good job.I love this side table.There are a lot of great reasons for you to get a wood side table. For one, they can be very aesthetically pleasing. If you pick one that matches your other decor, then a side table can add that little finishing touch that brings a room to life.
