Project Information

Built this from roughsawn mahoghany with only 2-weeks available. Worked from New Yankee plans but modified the turned legs by fluting them - quite the challenge for a rookie on a lathe! The top was made from two planks of wood 10' x 3' - two main tops plus two leaves - for a 10' x 4' tabletop. Finish is Mahoghany Gel Stain with LOTS of coats of rub-on gloss poly with lots of elbow grease to smooth between coats!

Very beautiful! I hope I can make legs half as good as those when I have several years of turning under my belt. (Don't even have a lathe yet, one day though).

Well done James. I like the way the legs came out - the fluting makes a big difference. Good workmanship.

Fantastic! Mirror finnish on the top, the fluted pedestals give allot of visual interest. Great material choice…a fine piece of furniture!

I saw Norm build that table on his show. Your version turned out better then his and that's not an easy thing to do. Excellent work.
