My Other Hobby

It has been a long time since I've posted to this blog but my camera has been stored away for a few months. Instead, I've been back in the workshop creating sawdust. I found a beautiful selection of tiger maple at my local hardwood supplier and decided to build this hall table with a maple top and walnut base. The design was inspired by a picture I saw in a magazine. The base was finished with amber shellac and top was dyed and sanded several times to get the tiger curls to "pop", then finished with several coats of lacquer and finally paste wax.
