Coffee Table


This coffee table is ebonized solid maple. The "angle iron" legs are made with 5/4 maple joined to form 3" wings, and the legs and aprons are joined with open mortise and tenon joints. The finish was an experiment; it's black aniline dye (which is water based) followed by an oil-based black pigment dye and finished with 3 coats of gloss ProFin, which is a urethane film finish. Close inspection reveals a few ProFin runs on the legs.
