Black Walnut Modern Coffee Table

Customer wanted a modern style coffee table in the form of a cube. I found a local sawyer who had some air dried black walnut that had been sitting in his barn for about 8 years. The wood had more knots than I wanted but it was too nice to pass up.

Final dimensions are 18" high, 24" wide and 41" wide.

The doors have Sass hidden hinges and touch latches.

There are adjustable shelves in each side.

The entire table is finished with 3 coats of a linseed oil, polyurethane and thinner mixture. Each coat was hand rubbed and buffed.

Two coats of Rockler’s polyurethane gel were applied to the top for added protection.

Lyn picked up the table today and is taking it to its new home in Bosie, Idaho.
