Project Information

This is my first project post to LJ, so go easy on me :)

The table is also the first major wood working project to come out of my shop for our new home. It is a Greene & Greene inspired design. I really enjoy the Arts & Craft/Stickley style of furniture, but mostly because making a straight cut is pretty easy. I decided it was time to challenge myself and start adding some 'pieces of flair' to my work. The table is made out of mahogany, and the top is a rosewood veneer. I'm sorry that the third photo didn't turn out so well, but it was storming outside when I took the pictures and I didn't know it turned out so dark.

The furry friend in the first picture is Zeus.

Edited to show the stained-glass window as requested.

As was once pointed out to me, by another LumberJock, some people will do anything to get their dog's picture on the Internet ;^)

A real dog! And a beautiful hall table. I Love the G&G style, and that looks like an excellent example. Welcome to LJ and looking forward to more.

Very nice table. Could you also post a picture of the stained glass window behind it?

Very nice job - are the spindles a different species? The center (Straight) spindles seem the same mahogany, but the outers are lighter - I like the contrast, just wondering if this was done by stain/not staining, or if thes was an additional wood type.

The entire table (except for the top) is mahogany. The side spindles and bottom runner came from a much lighter board, whereas the rest of the wood came from a much darker board. Everything was stained the same using Seal-a-Cell and then finished with Arm-R-Seal satin (I would prefer at least a semi-gloss, but the wife wanted satin, and who am I to argue!)

Oh my gosh! Can't believe you posted this. It looks nothing like a real dog. On a more positive note though the table behind it is quite nice!
