    Oak Corner Table

    I designed and built this corner table to fill a niche in my living room. It's patterned very loosely on a Shaker design I saw at Pleasant Hill last summer.

    Construction is all mortise and tenon.

    Dimensions are 24" high; long sides of the top are 20" X 20", and the short sides are 8˝". Legs are inside tapered on the lower 16".

    Finish is Transtint Medium Brown, followed by a Van Dyke Brown (from crystals) wash; then a couple coats of de-waxed garnet shellac, sanded to 220 and followed up with numerous (I didn't count) coats of General Finishes "Enduro" water-borne lacquer.

    BTW, the cantilevered jewelry box on top of the table is one that I made in 2009. It got a blue ribbon at the Canfield, Ohio fair.Click image for larger version.

    Very nice! I really like that 'double' leg look...& that 'helper' seems to be posing more like a 'supervisor'

    A perfect fit and I see the boss approves.

    I really like it, Larry. I was gonna buy the Target stuff, but Jeff Jewitt told me that his preference has shifted from Target to the Enduro. Ad propaganda says the Enduro has full lacquer "burn-in" just like the solvent stuff, and that seems to be the case. Directions say to re-coat within six hours for burn-in, btw.

    I used a gravity feed HLVP 'touch-up' gun with a 1.2mm tip, as recommended by Jeff, and sprayed the Enduro unthinned. It lays down really nice. BTW, I bought a new gun from Jeff, too, and it's a world better than the old (and cheap!) HF gun I'd been using for the past few years. I'd been pretty happy with the HF gun until I tried this one. I'll post more about the gun in a separate thread, soon.
