Simi Elliptical Table with silver leaf gilded top

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Simi Elliptical Table with silver leaf gilded topThe table is made from African Mahogany. The top is gilded with silver leaf, and then a patina was applied with sulfur potash to add a variety of contrasting colors and aged look to the piece. The silver leaf is sealed in with several coats of polyurethane to protect it.The outer rim of the top is made up of segmented pieces of mahogany. Since it is not a perfect circle rather an oval shape, each segment, from the center point of the table to the edge was cut at different lengths and angles to achieve the oval shape.To continue the semi ellipse theme, the fronts of the legs are shaped as a semi ellipse as well, and then taper to a smaller oval foot. The legs were hand shaped with a spokeshave. To attach the legs to the top, I scribed the curve of the apron and curve of the top to the back of the legs and pegged them in place with dowels from behind.You can watch it be built on youtube
Thanks for watching
