My wife wanted a feature when we enter the house. So I suggested a natural timber, narrow, hall stand. And she wanted to place a mirror on the wall. So I got some recycled messmate from a reclaimed timber yard in Port Melbourne, Whelan Warehouse I think. I wanted some detail for this basic table, so decided to do a tongue and groove joint. Here's a photo of it, with the putty applied. Still need to sand it off and seal it
Here's another photo of the hall table, and dove tail joint. If you have suggestions for a great wood stain to bring out the detail in the Australian hardwood, please let me know
Thanks for sharing your table with us @boris. I've moved your second post into the same discussion so that members can follow along with your project.
It looks like the second picture didn't come through. Please let me know if I can help at all with uploading images. We'd love to see more pictures of the table so that members can give suggestions about wood stain.
Thank you so much for the update on that hall table project. That extra feature for the join definitely adds a handmade custom look to your table. I can just imagine how good the finish will be once you have placed a sealer on this. Did you use a router or did you use ordinary hand tools to create the tongue and groove join? I'm sure our members look forward to seeing this table once you've finished.
We look forward to seeing more.
Hi Eric, I used a handsaw for the dove tail joints. Yes, I wanted to add some detail, rather than a normal join. This side of the table will be visible most. Will post more images once I have sealed the wood. Cheers
