    work in progress - table

    This is a simple table made to fit behind our sofa. It matches a pair of tables I made a year ago. Cherry. In process of finishing. The dovetails are all done by hand. Pegged M&T joint joining the aprons. Pegs are cherry, 3/16" diameter, run thru a shop-made dowel plate. Legs tapered by bandsaw and plane. The top is from a single board. Finish thus far is 2 coats dewaxed shellac, 2 coats wipe-on varnish, to be be followed by several more. Then wax. I turned the knobs. One tip for others is to finish the knobs on the lathe, then finish the drawer front, and after the drawer is finished, install the knob. Much better look on the final finish that way.

    Dimensions are 26.5" tall by 43" long by 11" deep.

    I'll post some final images when it's done.

    Looking real nice so far, Ken. Your dovetails always look spot on. The top looks like it has a little bit of curl in the figure, too.

    Allen - I'd be glad to.
    Larry - my new used DC remote. It sure beats walking over to the DC, bending over, walking back....
    Thanks all.
