    coffee table for my daughter complete

    hi all ,

    just thought i would post a few pictures of what i have beeen up to lately, it keeps my busy and off the streets
    i still have to rub out the finish on the top , but you get the idea

    special thanks to our friend joan for helping me with the leg turnings , she completed 3 of them for me . i only had time to turn one while i was in the neighborhood
    the table is made of poplar with a bookmatched top and an orange shellac finish.
    thanks for looking

    YIPEEE!!!!! It's done and looking great. Nice job grizzz. I really do like the way the top came out with the shellac finish and that type of wood. You did a nice job on the dovetails too. Another family herloom. She will absolutely love it!!!

    Looks great Griz (and Joan). Nice, clean, and simple. You two do good work.

    Hi Jim ,
    That is a really nice lookin table. With the thin strong legs it will allow more leg room while still being attractive looking as you approach it.. Nice job.

    Jim, interesting use of dovetails to give a nice accent. Keep up the good work!
