Magazine Table

This is a hallway magazine table that I made from slab Claro. I wanted to go through the whole process of milling the lumber from a slab (a first for me!). It was a great learning experience, but I'll probably stick to S2S in the future! Traditional M&T joinery, and some Craftsman/Mission styling that my wife likes so much. Finished with some Watco Dark Walnut for a consistent color, a seal coat of ruby shellac, then a gel stain for some pop and four coats of sprayed lacquer and buffed out. Now my wife puts shoes on it…oh well, I'm still happy with it!

fantastic buddy.

working with my hands is a joy,it gives me a sense of fulfillment,somthing so many seek and so few find.-SAM MALOOF.

Oh wow … that’s wonderful 

And then it surprised me to see it as a shoe rack. Brilliant 

And the photo without the table top has me thinking that it doubled as a plant stand …

Beautifully done.  Little sad to see shoes on it, although is a nice fashionable way to be organized!
Yeah, I cringed at the shoes too. But SWMBO thought it was a great use for it…so who am I deny her an heirloom quality, hand fitted and finished shoe rack, right?
