Asian-Inspired Hall Table
I resized this digital plan by Timothy Rousseau, down to 36L X 29 1/4T X 12 3/4W to better suit my space. Padauk top, Birch rails & lower shelf, walnut legs, shelf rails and under rails. 100% hand tools (except to drill the holes to secure the top), and joinery (except wood screws to fill the holes). Finished with mineral oil & beeswax 1:1, and finish wax topcoat.
A challenging, rewarding experience for my first furniture piece – 14 through, 8 regular mortise-and-tenons having only practiced them a few times before. Roughly 60 hours.
