    Coffee Table

    Hi Guys, here is my first post of some of the work I have done. It's a coffee table (center is stained cherry with maple around the outside). It turned out exactly like I'd hoped, although I know I will probably get raked for staining the cherry

    Very nice table and aren't you glad you used the maple instead of the oak you were first planning to use. Oh and regarding the stain on the cherry........... It is realy up to you depebding on how you wanted it to look.

    Looks like a real nice job. Nice work!
    Who cares if staining cherry goes against tradition. Like Don said, if its the look you were going for than it's a winner.

    Dawson, that is one beautiful table!!
    I like the whole effect. It is your table, you are happy with it, case closed! The should have, would have, could have game will make a person go insane, make it for the person that will use it.

    No raking here; that came out beautifully.

    Really nice Dawson, but don't be so stingy with the photo's! Would be nice to see what the rest of the table looks like.
