The construction of this table is completely traditional. All the joinery is mortice and tenon, dovetail joints where they are appropriate. The drawers are assembled with hand cut dovetails and raised drawer bottoms. The main wood is curly maple and the secondary wood is clear white pine. The maple has been stained with a brown mahogany dye and glazed with a very dark glaze to simulate some "age" and the whole piece is finished with an oil/varnish blend. Can built to your specifications.
