    That looks great. I like the clean, simple lines and the accents are just right.

    Very nice. So now you can put your feet up (on it), have a beer (setting the bottle right on the table), kick back, and relax.

    Looks GREAT, Dan!

    I'm in the middle of - okay beginning stages - of building my cherry coffee table. I keep getting distracted by my metal lathe or building the shed in the back yard.

    Very nice!

    What's the finish?

    What did you use for the pegs?

    it appears in your last pic that you have a shading problem looks like you may have to much shellac in the one area.. looks good dan

    jason, the finish is basically one coat of boiled linseed oil, 3 coats of amber shellac, and 2 coats of clear shellac in that order. i follow it up with johnson's paste wax.

    larry, i think you may have stepped on your beard when you looked at that last pic. the light part is a reflection of the wall in the top of the table...
