African Mahogany Entry Table

author-gravatar GotClamps Jun 27, 2020

I built this entry table to fit in an odd space in the entryway of a home. It was modeled after a design, but had to tailor the dimensions to fit the space while maintaining proportions. Mortise and tenon joinery. Finished in Varathane Stain, Arm-R-Seal, and lacquer.

Like every project, starts as a pile of boards.

Milling

I didn't show it, but I laminated boards to make the thickness for the legs. I aimed for as straight grain as possible to.hide the glue lines. Then they got trimmed to size.

Mortises. Nothing ended up in the wrong spot!

I utilized the "speed tenon" method for all the tenons.

I used a cost of stain to give the mahogany "aged" tint to match and existing piece in the client's home.
