Mahogany and Maple Console Table

Console table straight lines softened with a subtle curve.

This amazing character and colors of this console table will be the focal point of any entryway or home decor.

I glued 33 random width strips of mahogany together, the lightest colored pieces grouped in the center for a contrasting stripe, to form the top. The top then received an arc on either end, also cutting a cove on the underside of the arc, to soften the look. I took that same radius arc and carried onto the base legs and crossbar, further visually tying all the pieces together.

The console table base is made up of character-grade maple, with streaks of color similar to that of the mahogany (it kinda looks like wisps of flame). Extra stripe material was used to create the feet, which are notched into the legs. I used simple joinery techniques – rabbets and mahogany dowels along with hide glue – to assemble this furniture piece. While simple in execution, it’s very structurally stable and has been used for ages in woodworking to create lasting heirloom pieces.

To finish the console table I wiped on Rubio Monocoat pure oil – a durable, low-sheen oil/wax product.

Overall size: 42″ l x 10 3/4″ w x 32″ h
Top and feet are 1 1/2″ thick, legs are 2 3/4″ wide x 3/4″ thick.
