Thread: Table

  1. #1


    Well, this is flat-work...and turning. Took over a month to complete cause I've been under the weather with some kind if tenacious bug. Anyhoo, Its red oak, as you probably guessed. And as you turners probably already know, turning red oak spindles can be frustrating, it certainly was for me; very splintery and chippy. Took longer to do the legs than all the rest combined, but in the end I was satisfied with the results. It's 60"x27"x32" high. Joints are floating MT. The customer provided the piece of marble. They are an Air Force couple who brought it back from Italy. It was in a table they didn't like, so they asked me incorporate it in a sofa table. They had a picture from an Ethan Allen catalog they wanted me to copy, so I didn't have much freedom of design. Oh well, all I can say is CHA CHING!!! I'll take the money and run. It actually looks remarkably like the picture (aside from the marble top). Cheers, Barry

    Well, no wonder there was cha-ching involved. A table that nice is worth some serious compensation. Great job, Barry.

    Very Nice Barry. I'm glad you're feeling better too. I fought that bug for over 2 1/2 months and STILL don't have my strength back yet, so be careful and don't overdo it, 'cause you don't want it to come back at you like it did me. (It's much harder to kill the second time around).

    No, not all of SoCal is Los Angeles!
    Red oak can be a challenge but, with obvious rewards. Very nicely done.
