OAK AND MAGNOLIA
A floral inlay highlights this sturdy coffee table.
SHOP OWNER: John Coco
LOCATION: Alexandria, LA
I enjoy making small furniture. Recently my wife wanted a coffee table to replace a old table we had. She is very fond of magnolias.
The result is an oak table with a magnolia inlay. The center of the flower is mahogany, the petals are American holly, the leaves are heart poplar, and the stem is walnut. I stained it "golden oak" and used Benjamin Moore's "Stays Clear" as a top coat.
I am planning on making two end tables to match soon.. . . John Coco
