I Made a Table!

It's true. This past quarter at RIT, I took a woodworking class, in which I built the above table out of one piece of maple wood, purchased at Pittsford Lumber. The top of the table is a true bookmatch, meaning that it is one piece of wood, cut in half, opened up, and joined together, creating a mirroring affect. After much hand sanding, I applied two coats of Tried & True, an all natural wood finish, made from linseed oil and beeswax. I can't take all the credit, though. George Dubinsky, the course instructor, designed the table and provided much help, as did his assistant, Trevor Ritchie.

Table Dimensions: 16.5"w x 23"h
