I have finally made a dining table for Sally and me. The legs were made back in 2018 but, until recently, I didn't have the wood required to build a top. The legs are made of Cherry. The top is made of cherry with a book matched rectangular walnut insert. Finished with 3 coats of Arm-R-Seal and 2 coats of boiled linseed oil. January 2020. (Photo has temporary top. Photos with finished table top coming soon!)
Waterfall Slab Coffee Table with Iron Leg
Cherry slab dovetailed to a waterfall leg. Rectangular iron leg at other end of table. Finished with two coats of Arm-R-Seal and 4 coats of boiled linseed oil. July 2019
Oval Dining Table
Top is constructed using two curved boards book matched from the center of a large Cherry log. The gap formed by the curved boards is filled with walnut. The legs are constructed from solid cherry. Finished with two coats of Arm-R-Seal topped with two coats of boiled linseed oil impregnated with pine resin. July 2018
Desk Without Drawers
Top is constructed with two adjoining slabs from the middle of the same log joined with a curved walnut strip. Natural openings are stabilized with ornamental walnut bowties. Legs and top are constructed from solid cherry. Rubbed oil finish. September 2015
