|Finished tables in clients home- 55" x 11" x29"|
The other requirement was a marble, slate, or limestone top. The tops you see are marble from a vendor in Madison, IN.
A good part of this entire build was making the mortise and tenon joinery. The rails shown above are for the lower shelf, 4 required.
For reference, the legs are 2" square (not shown), and the shelf slats here are 2 1/8" wide, all I needed to do was to get all of those in the opposite mortise at the same time and clamp it before one end or the other came apart. Took me more than one try, with a few choice words :)
Success! As usual, the second one went together a lot quicker than the first
The finish on the wood is two coats of Tried & True Danish Oil. This really brought out the character of this wood. I really enjoyed working with this reclaimed lumber. Hard to explain but this reclaimed white oak seem to cut a lot easier than the kiln dried material I am used to and the "defects", nail holes, worm tracks, knots etc, made it look all that much better.
