for the window.

It's been a long time coming, but I have finally finished the makore stake legged table that I started about five months ago. Or should I say refinished, given that I had to remove and reapply the finish before I could call it completed.

Image

The next problem was,
How to position it in the window so as to show it off to its best advantage? The oak table of the same design was best displayed upright, as the grain, although not unpleasant, was nonetheless, somewhat ordinary. The grain of the makore table is however, extraordinary, and easily its best feature. The height of the window above the street makes the top of an upright table invisible to nearly everyone.

Image

So while the oak table was displayed upright, I tipped the makore table over to rest on its edge. Hopefully, it still resembles a table, and will strike the fancy of a potential customer.

Cheers,
Tom

Tom,

The legs are too beautiful to hide!! Have you thought about standing it upright and setting a mirror on it to reflect the top?

That is a beautiful one-of-a-kind heirloom piece, Tom. Whatever the price, I bet it will be hard to part with.
Thanks for posting.

Don
