This whole time I've been toiling away with Warren's Walnut Console (which is in the finish room right now), Stu has been patiently awaiting progress updates and pictures of his table (which has been equally active in the shop).
It's going to be a beautiful table! Stu and I have been communicating for quite some time working together to develop the perfect living room table for he and his wife. They have a very clear vision for how it will be used in their home and we worked together to come up with a really nice piece. I enjoy working with Stu, and I'll be a little sad when this project is done.
It's solid cherry, and such a lovely shade of pink right now - I hope he sends me pictures in a few months as that cherry starts to darken naturally to the stunning red mature cherry furniture is known for.
I plan to glue the table up Saturday, need Nick's help since the lower shelf needs to be part of the glue process as the fit is too tight to work it in after assembly. I really don't like to do glue-ups solo... The stakes are too high.
Here are some progression photos of the project:
Stu and his wife had a particular drawer pull design they liked. I'd never seen it before and it really is quite pretty so I made those yesterday. Here's the pictorial process of how I made them: (they were a fun little project)
