    mahogany end table

    Here's a few pics of an end table that I'm nearly finished with. I still need a few coats on the top. The wood is mahogany. I applied a dye mix to darken it up. If I build another I'll make a few modifications to the design.

    I'm biased as I am a huge G&G fan. I think this is a fine piece of work. Nicely done!

    Here, here. Very nice piece. Mahogany is great to work with, isn't it?

    Yes, the mahogany was great to work with. This is the second time I ever built anything using it. The first was a shaker wall clock. It was the first thing I ever built. Ignorant me, I thought it was cherry. In my defense however it was recycled wood from an old dresser and the only wood I'd ever built anything with was white pine.

    This mahogany is some great looking stuff. The top is two boards. They were a little over 12 inches wide each and 16 foot long and all clear. The guy let me have it for 5 buck per bdft. I thought it was a good deal.

    12 inches wide and all clear, you got a very fair and good price.
    You should have taken another few boards.
    In my short time working with hardwoods, I think mahogany has beautiful color, grain, and characteristics, and your table shows them off so well.
    Beautiful piece of work, thankyou for sharing it.

    Bravo! Great job, John.

    By the way, I took the liberty of rotating the last picture so the table leg is going up and down instead of sideways.
