Diagonal Table from Wood Scraps


DM, that is just way too cool, that color is really going to pop when you put the finish on, I like it. I bet there are a bunch of pen turners drooling over all those potential pens you have.

By the way, I have a DW708 wood shrinker for sale for $600, you know how sometimes the wood stretchers will over do it just a tad.

Pretty work buddy, I would be proud of that beautiful table top. Are you planning to make one with the 3/4X3/4 ends up so the end grains show?

Oh man! That is really nice DM. What are you going to do with the bottom? Stain and then varnish?

I'm not sure. The 2x4 pine will be gone, but I'm still deciding how to do new legs.

I have legs (oak legs with horizontal, M&T walnut supports) half built.... kinda stuck on how to proceed.....

I'll take a couple pics in a few and maybe you guys can help me decide!

Here is what I have so far. routed edges, mortise and tenon center mounted walnut pieces.

Any ideas? I have to think of how to mount them to the underside of the table and cross bracing.

I just cut up two walnut side supports and now need to decide if they should be low, middle or as high as the other two long ones...?

I'm thinking ....about the middle? That seems to be the strongest method.

So! The middle it is! Po)

It should look pretty sharp after I varnish it.

Now THAT'S a beautiful table DM. The legs are perfect for it.

You should give yourself a pat on the back.

It WAS kind of fun doing this table. I'm thinking of making a coffee table and 2 end tables the same style and see what I can sell them for. Any suggestions as to $$$ asked are welcome.

Well, it looks like a million bucks, so start at that price.
