mahogany table legs

Furnished content.

mahogany table legsLast year I met a fellow who was a friend of a friend. As we were talking I was telling him about some of the woodworking I do. He told me that he had built a dining table 40 years ago and was still using it but he had always hated the legs and would I make him new legs. Had him send me some pictures of what type of legs he wanted and got to building. the legs are made of laminated 4/ quarter african mahogany sanded to 1500 grit and finished with 5 coats of gloss laquer and then paste wax. I delivered and installed the legs. The customer who has since become a good friend was so happy with the legs that he has had me build a live edge dining table for his son and the mother of all cutting boards for him.
