Tissue box #2I just finished tissue box #2. I wanted to try something that wrapped around the box. It was a bit of a challenge, but not too bad. Fortunately there wasn't a lot of pieces to match up.George

Multi-Wood Dining Table

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Multi-Wood Dining TableThis was a small dining table/desk I made for en Etsy customer. I did a similar one 2-3 years ago, and it was really neat seeing how far I've come since then. The joints are cleaner and stronger, the table is more solid, and the overall look is miles ahead of what the first one was.I used red oak, sapele, walnut, alder, and cherry, with sapele skirt and legs. The finish is my personal favorite: A Tung Oil Friction Finish, where the wood is oiled and then wet-sanded from 400 to 4000 grit. In the days after the initial finish, I continually hit it with a polishing pad to make sure it was as smooth and polished as I could make it, and it really paid off in the shine it has. As an added bonus, the legs are detachable for easy shipping and storage!This was a really nice project. Simple, straightforward, and beautiful. And to top it off, the client loved it and posted a very nice review!
