    A Beautiful Coffee Table !!!!

    Some of you might have seen this coffee table being made, but now I get to show you the finished product. My picture skills aren't the greatest and don't really show off how absolutely beautiful the table is but I thought I would share it with you anyway. It was a very special gift from my friend grizzz who says my BHG (Better Homes and Garden ) look is now complete in my livingroom. The finish is 5 coats of shellac. Then using an orbital sander, bluff it out, apply a coat of butchers wax, and continue to bluff it with the sander. Smooth as a babies bottom and shiny as glass. Thank you grizzz!!!! You do really nice flat work

    Hi Toni,
    Both the top and legs are made out of cherry wood with a cherry stain. The legs are box matched cherry glue ups, with 4 way tapers. The legs are mortised to accept the mitter teons of the apron parts.
