Simple-ish project to try out my new table saw. The legs are slightly splayed and the tenons are cut on the table saw but the throat plate is a bit bendy so the tenons were a bit of a mess. Also the blade was scarey so I need a big tall fence to clamp them to and keep my fingers well away. The stripes are made by putting thin contrasting strips in between the pieces of the glue-up. The contrast is rewa rewa, a NZ native, and the rest is macrocarpa. The finish is shellac, which is as easy as oil but less stinky. Actually the strong smell of spirits was great. Thanks for looking

Fastest Stool table ever. Racing stripes make all the difference in the world. Nicely done

So what is it?
A racing stool or a racing table? either way it looks just great.
Now and just as more important where are the pictures of the new table saw?
I see vacant spots that may be used!

Stool or end table, it looks great and sturdy. The stripes make great accents. Well done!
