Project Information

This is a project that I completed a while back. It was designed to be a table to fit between two swivel recliner chairs in my living room. The top is made of a round veneered sunburst pattern of some gorgeous walnut burl veneer that I got from North Carolina. It has a ring of solid walnut to edge it off and a maple inlay string separating the border from the field. The base is made from African Mahogany. The challenges on this project included the curved half-lap joinery on the base, and the veneering of the top. This was a fun project that didn't take a lot of time. The table is simple, yet has some really nice features.

Love the curved base. Adds a nice element to the beautiful top without overpowering it.

Caught my eye. A well done piece. I love it when a really talented woodworker with excellent skills says…:simple" LOL! Wow piece.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. The finish is an epoxy bar top finish. I went with it because the table actually gets a lot of use. The finish is tough and very resistant to pretty much anything.

Beautiful work. Did you design this yourself? Also, where do you buy epoxy bar top finish?

Yup it was my own design. I used a product called from System Three called Mirror coat. I bought it from a place online called Wood Essence, but it is widely available.
