HISTORY

When I saw these planks in the wood stacks, I thought they would look good as a table top.When I started to prepare the wood, it reminded me of a Japanese style table. I felt the name should reflect this, so I have called it the Samurai Coffee Table. The timber for this table has come from H&A Lewis, Boyndlie, Fraserburgh. It was cut from Forglen Estate, near Turriff. I have been seasoning the timber for 2 years.

I am going to use a light brown stain and clear wax to finish it off.

JOINT STRUCTURE

The photos above show the planks for the top to be almost bowl shaped. I have made the shelf from slats about 20mm x 40mm set on edge and morticed into the lower rails.

The legs are 80mm x 80mm and are scribed to the underside of the top. The rails are mortice and tenoned into the legs. The top is screwed down onto the rails with 5 x 75mm screws into counter-bored holes. The holes are filled with Oak pegs.

I have used a light Oak stain over all with a little Rosewood to provide some emphasis. The whole piece is finished with clear beeswax.
