Karen (Wed AM TG) – 

Here are some photos of my third project completed recently at MSFW… another two bed side tables!  These are made out of Fijian mahogany with the drawers in American Rock Maple. I used the domino for the first time to do these joints.

In comparison, my first lot of bed side tables were made out of Vic Ash with strips of blackwood in the top and each shelf (see last photo) and the joints were done using dowels.

I put one coat of shellac and several coats of Danish oil on the Ash and Blackwood tables. I did the same on the table legs and sides of the Mahogany tables and have used the water based Integrain clear on the Maple drawers.

I am doing the top of the latest bedside tables with oil based cabothane gloss and then Danish oil.
