This a soild cuban mahagony dinning table and chairs I built. The chairs have hand carved/shaped seats. The table is 40 inches wide and 86 inches long. There are eight chairs with the set. The top has bread board ends peged with square pegs. The finish is five coats of satin varnish and then hand rubbed paste wax. Joinery is all mortise and tenions.
