I had some leftover Black Walnut and found a few nice pieces of Bubinga, the legs were cut than shaped with a rasp and files.
The joints are mortise and tenon.
For the finish, I choose to use Danish oil on the legs and apron,with plenty of wet sanding to fill the pores.The topcoat is arm a seal
The top has 4 layers of GF Arm-A-Seal, followed by several coats of wax to polish the finish.
Overall, it was a painless and fun project.

I saw the first picture and thought…......what a nice looking table.
I saw the second picture with the table in it’s surroundings and thought to myself…..this fits the spot perfectly.
Well done.

Thanks for the complements, it was a fun project to build.
I need a low profile entertainment center to match the table.
