Table 752 with wooden vase of dried lavender
This side table is well sized to stand in your entryway or to serve as an accent piece in a sitting room. I’ve constructed it from figured, hard maple with a walnut drawer front. The secondary interior wood is clear, Eastern white pine. I’ve finished it with several coats of high quality tung oil and hand buffed wax.

A few years ago, I built a small display table from a few boards of Khaya (a species of African “mahogany” that isn’t really a true mahogany, but still has a pretty grain). This table is one of the few pieces of furniture that I have built and am still in possession of. It stands about 31 inches high and has a top that measures 20 1/2 inches wide by 10 1/4 inches deep. Currently, it lives in the entryway of my house with a small bowl I turned from purpleheart several years ago and a wooden Buddha that I cannot claim responsibility for. One of the projects I hope to start in the near future is a display cabinet for the Buddha and the bowl and a matching table with a drawer and reverse taper legs for it to rest on. I will most likely build them both from walnut. Once they are complete, I might consider selling the Khaya table.
